Oklahoma Policy Institute released the following statement on Governor Fallin’s announcement that she is calling a special session beginning September 25:

Governor Fallin did what’s right for Oklahoma by calling a special session to prevent severe cuts to basic health care services for our people. Now lawmakers have a second chance to get the budget right, and they shouldn’t waste it. They have many good options to raise the revenues needed to protect our schools, health care, and public safety from yet another round of damaging cuts. It’s time to get beyond political gridlock, make the agreements necessary to pass recurring revenues, and stop kicking the can down the road with one-time funds or across-the-board cuts.
