Senate Pro Tem comments on special session call

OKLAHOMA CITY - Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Schulz, R-Altus, issued the following statement regarding the Governor's official call for a special legislative session:

"The Oklahoma Senate is up to the challenge and is ready to get to work. Our leadership already has been working through a variety of scenarios in preparation for the special session. There is no time to waste on ideas that haven’t been completely vetted. Let’s focus on ideas we’ve vetted – like a cigarette tax increase – that will help us address the immediate shortfall and provide recurring revenue going forward. As far as long-term budget solutions, the Senate already has shown its commitment to solving this problem by passing a plan during the regular session to provide new, recurring revenue. I believe the Senate could again pass such a plan if given the chance during a special session.”
