STATEMENT OF SENATE PRESIDENT PRO TEM
GLENN COFFEE ON NARROW DEFEAT OF
TORT REFORM REFERENDUM TODAY

The action of my colleagues in the Senate today leaves me disappointed but unbowed.

This is not the end of this fight. Indeed, this is just the beginning. We’ve worked too hard for too many years to let one more defeat stop us in what will ultimately be victory for reform and a benefit for all Oklahomans.

I would remind my colleagues that Republicans won our current majority based largely on our vow to bring lawsuit reform to our state, and that position is shared by a large majority of Oklahomans – Republican, Democrat, and independent.

Admiral John Paul Jones said it best, and I’ll blatantly claim his words as my own today – we have not yet begun to fight.
