SENATE REPUBLICANS UNVEIL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT,
ENERGY AND GOVERNMENT REFORM SECTION OF 2010 LEGISLATIVE AGENDA
Oklahoma Senate Republicans today released the first section
of their 2010 Legislative agenda, focusing on their goals for Economic
Development, Energy, and Government Reform.
“The Republican majorities in the Senate and House were able to produce unprecedented success for Oklahoma’s citizens last session, with comprehensive lawsuit reform, ensuring quality medical care for rural Oklahomans through the OSU Medical Center, education reform, public safety improvements, and many other positive developments,” said Lamb. “We believe, even in this challenging economic climate, that more progress can be made, and we’re proud of the legislative agenda we’re starting to roll out today.”
“Our caucus is united in its desire to bring a more efficient and productive state government to the people of Oklahoma, and I’m very proud of the legislative goals we’re introducing today and in the coming days,” said Pro Tem Coffee. “Oklahoma businesses and families will certainly benefit from the agenda we are laying out in 2010.”
Republican goals for Economic Development, Energy and Government Reform include bills that will:
- Create an Office of Accountability and Innovation to eliminate waste
in state government;
Republican Senators will file bills advancing each of the above goals,
and will work with members in the Senate and House to pass these measures
on to the Governor for his signature.
