Sen. Coffee: Senate Dems’ Obstruction at Fault for Special Session

Senator Glenn Coffee Senator Glenn Coffee

State Senate Republican Leader Glenn Coffee of Oklahoma City made the following statement regarding Gov. Brad Henry’s call for a special session on the state budget:

“This is the special session that should not be. It is only necessary because of the weeks of obstruction by Senate Democrats and their unwillingness to allow a meaningful income tax cut for Oklahoma taxpayers in a year with a record tax surplus,” Coffee said.

“Sen. Mike Morgan and the Senate’s old guard liberals have now gotten what they wanted all along: a special session. Gov. Henry should lead to ensure that the Senate liberals do not succeed in creating a budget train wreck that shuts down the state government.”
