Statement from Democratic Leader Charles Laster on Gov. Henry’s Budget Plan

"I believe Governor Henry is taking a responsible approach to dealing with the current budget crisis by asking legislative leaders to conduct hearings with agency officials to determine how further cuts are going to affect Oklahoma families.

It is prudent we keep a level head and work together, leaving our political differences at the door as we proceed with any decision to come back for a special session. The Governor has done that, and it is my hope Republican leaders will follow suit.

The Senate Democratic caucus stands ready and willing to work with the Governor and legislative leaders to do our job to ensure the needs of Oklahoma families are met."
