Time to ask “How do you plan to fund my services if you cut revenues?”

A badly planned and poorly timed tax cut has narrowly passed the House and gone to Governor Fallin for her signature. It schedules automatic tax cuts over the next several years that will cost more than $250 million when fully implemented. So what now? We are still looking at damaging cuts to the public services that matter to you […]

What we haven’t done to stop impending cuts to services

Made sure that ALL House members are ready to vote NO on SB 1246.  This bill is extra scary because it is what they call a “live round.” Usually tax bills have their “titles stricken”, which mean they get sent to conference committee for further consideration. SB 1246 has moved through the process with its […]

Call now and Why bother?

I bet you can think of 20 people you know who complain a lot and never contact their legislators directly. Non-voting Oklahomans and Oklahomans who don’t hold their elected officials accountable have TAUGHT our legislators to ignore us! The only remedy is to show them that we are paying attention time and time again. Last […]

The poll results show you aren’t alone!

Oklahomans Agree… A new public opinion poll shows that less than half of Oklahoma registered voters now support the plan to reduce the state’s top income tax rate. Huge majorities oppose cutting funding for services like education, public safety, and health care to pay for tax cuts. Oklahomans know that isn’t a good trade. The poll shows […]

Out of the “chamber of origin” and into the fire?

Where are we in the legislative session?  You may know, but MANY Oklahomans struggle to keep up with the fast moving and complicated legislative process. Please help your friends and neighbors by sharing this information. By March 15th, all bills that will be heard this session have passed their “chamber of origin.” Any bills we […]

Tax cut fight is not over — how we could still win

Separate tax cut bills have passed in both the House and Senate, but the debate is far from over. All Democrats and several Republicans have bravely opposed the tax cuts.  We know there are more who would like to do so, but aren’t yet so brave.  Your legislators need to hear from you that cutting taxes even […]
