A Better Path Forward – Report Release and Conversation will be livestreamed via the embedded video above and via OK Policy’s social media channels on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27.

During the past two decades, Oklahoma lawmakers have made decisions — intentionally or not — that have cut nearly a quarter of the state’s budget capacity, which has harmed its ability to deliver essential public services. The Oklahoma Policy Institute on Wednesday, Oct. 27, will release A Better Path Forward, a comprehensive report detailing how the state got here and the implications of those decisions.
More importantly, A Better Path Forward includes a menu of budget and tax reforms that can provide vital state revenue while bringing more fairness to the state’s tax system.
OK Policy seeks to stimulate bipartisan, public conversation about how Oklahoma can strengthen state revenue, better support public services, level the playing field along racial and economic lines, and make meaningful investments in our future success. A Better Path Forward provides a starting point for those conversations.
