State Senator Charles Laster
Democratic Majority Leader
For Immediate Release: November 17, 2009
Sen. Charles Laster
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."
