Statement from President Pro Tempore Glenn Coffee on REAP Funding

“Senate Republicans realize the importance of rural Oklahoma and the critical need to fund REAP. For years, members of the Senate Republican Rural Caucus have worked tirelessly to bring quality reform to this state and protect such a vital asset like rural Oklahoma. Nothing has changed this year to detour their course of strengthening rural Oklahoma. Despite the many claims we are neglecting this most valued resource, Senate Republicans are continuing to look at additional revenue sources to fund REAP. Just because the General Appropriations bill has passed does not mean REAP funding cannot be included in a separate bill. The session is not over and we are taking the time to find a suitable vehicle for this vital funding.”
