Taylor Comments on Redistricting Ruling

Statement by Senator Stratton Taylor,
Senate President Pro Tempore

"I haven't had time to review the court's ruling so I can't comment on the specifics of the decision. Obviously, I am disappointed that the court did not select the redistricting plan submitted by the State Senate.

"Unlike Governor Keating's proposal, the Senate plan put the people ahead of the incumbent politicians and preserved historic communities of interest, namely the separate districts in northeastern and southeastern Oklahoma.

"In the days to come, I will be talking to Speaker Adair and our attorneys to determine what our next step might be."
