No Spring Break at the State Capitol

While schools are out on spring break this week across the state our state legislature is in high gear and making plans for Saturday sessions in April.

Today at 1:30 p.m. the State Senate is expected to hear HB1234, the General Appropriations bill. Discussion will center around the joint agreement issued yesterday on how to spend $7 BILLION DOLLARS. The agreement was forged by House Speaker Lance Cargill, R-Harrah, Sen. President Pro-Tempore Mike Morgan, D-Stillwater, and Co Sen. President Pro-Tempore Glenn Coffee, R-Oklahoma City.

According to a flurry of press releases and reports from the capitol, House Democrats and the Governor's office were excluded from negotiations on the budget bill.
