Wisdom of savings revealed in pandemic

Last year, Gov. Kevin Stitt and state lawmakers at the Oklahoma Capitol had more than $600 million in growth revenue to allocate. 

Tax consumers demanded that every last dime be spent. Instead, Gov. Stitt and a majority of legislators set aside more than $200 million of the surplus to save for a future downturn in Oklahoma's economy.

Now, that responsible choice looks more prudent than ever.

Help Oklahoma children

SB 407 will allow thousands of more children to benefit from scholarships and inject more than $20 million in private funding into traditional public schools. “To raise that cap means that more kids can be helped,” said Sen. Rader.

Kevin McDugle (R-Broken Arrow) would prohibit any medical provider from reporting a health-care debt to a credit bureau or pursuing collection actions against a patient unless the provider can demonstrate the patient “was presented with and agreed to the total cost of all healthcare services” prior to receiving the services.
