Statement of Senate President Pro Tem Glenn Coffee on Budget Figures Released by State Treasurer Scott Meacham

Sen. Glenn Coffee Sen. Glenn Coffee

“Certainly, the figures released today are not surprising, given the recent drop in oil and gas revenues in Oklahoma. We’re fortunate that our state is not in similar fiscal crises in which many states across the nation find themselves. But we will still need to look closely at all agency budgets and identify efficiencies to carry us through this period. This is an opportunity to find and cut fat and unnecessary programs while making our government more efficient in the long term.”
