An invitation from OK Policy

by | March 9th, 2015 | Posted in Blog, OK Policy | Comments (0)

We believe that Oklahoma can be a great state, one that ensures prosperity for all our citizens through good schools, good jobs, good health and strong communities. To make the best policy decisions that lead us to this better future, policymakers and citizens need good, factual information. But the way Oklahomans get their news and information is changing more quickly than ever before.

To better provide the tools you need to stay informed and to advocate for fair and responsible public policies, we’re conducting some research on how you find our information and how you put it to use, as well as what we can do differently to better serve you.

So, if you have a few moments to spare, we invite you to fill out the OK Policy Audience Survey.
