Senate Republican Appropriations Co-Chairman Comments on Signing of Budget Bill

State Sen. Mike Johnson, the Republican co-chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, commented on Gov. Brad Henry’s signing of a $7.068 general appropriations bill that contains the state’s budget for fiscal year 2009.

“Other states are slashing their budgets, so we’re fortunate here in Oklahoma to have a good economy that allowed us to put together a standstill budget for next year. This budget is not perfect, but the Senate, House and governor’s office successfully worked together to develop a bipartisan budget that meets our basic commitments while avoiding cuts to state agencies,” said Johnson, R-Kingfisher.
