The joint Senate-House conference committee, which will consider legislation dealing with budgetary matters, will include every senator other than the two Senate leaders.
Crafting the state budget is the single most important job our members are asked to do each legislative session said Morgan, D-Stillwater. Naming GCCA members today is a good indication that budget work is going smoothly and ensures we are poised to complete our work on time.
A lot of work remains to be done on budget issues this session, but the naming of GCCA members today shows that the State Senate is on track to bring the 2008 legislative session to an orderly and timely adjournment. Were headed down the homestretch, said Coffee, R-Oklahoma City.
