On November 6, besides voting for a new governor and several other state offices, Oklahoma voters will decide five state questions on topics from optometry to school funding. To help you make informed choices on these state questions, OK Policy has already released fact sheets for each one with background information and a summary of arguments made by both supporters and opponents. To add to this resource, today I spoke with OK Policy’s Executive Director David Blatt and Policy Director Carly Putnam to discuss what each of the five state questions on the ballot mean and what people are saying about them. This conversation will be one of the easiest ways for you to quickly get up to speed before election day.

  1. make sure he includes the cost of implementation, in other words what each bill will cost the tax payer and the burden of revenue on each , on two of these alone , it would cost the state and its taxpayers /revenue more then 4 million a year . make sure you tell the whole truth and nothing but .
