Senate President Pro Tem Mike Morgan
Senate Leader Comments on Senate Republican’s Policy
Statement by Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Morgan
“Over the past year in an evenly divided senate, the Senate
Democratic Caucus has proven we are willing to set aside partisan
politics to find common ground on policies that help move our state
“While there will certainly be disagreements on specific
policies initiatives, I believe we will be able to find common ground
on some of the proposals set forth by Senate Republicans today.
But we must ensure we are doing so without duplicating constitutionally-mandated
state services, or limiting opportunities for working and middle-class
Oklahomans to have a brighter future.
“In the coming weeks, we intend to unveil an aggressive,
specific legislative agenda that offers opportunity and encourages
responsibility for all Oklahomans.
“We will certainly encourage Republicans to join us in a
bi-partisan effort to move Oklahoma into greatness.”
