Senate Pro Tem Mike Schulz statement regarding OEA revenue plan

“Senate Republicans agree that teachers deserve a significant pay raise, which is why 85 percent of Senate Republicans voted last week in favor of a 12.7 percent teacher pay raise. A 12.7 percent raise is two-and-a-half times more than what West Virginia teachers received, and would rank Oklahoma No. 2 in the region for average teacher pay. Many of the revenue ideas Senate Republicans support are within the OEA revenue plan announced today. Senate Republicans have worked for the past year and a half on a teacher pay raise plan and will continue working to fund a significant raise.” - Senate Pro Tem Mike Schulz, R-Altus
