  1. Is there a pdf down load of the entire Budget Guide? It is better to download and then view/read offline in pdf format. I hope you see the wisdom in this request; especially for those who have slow dial up internet connections.
    Thank you for all the good work you are doing for our great state of oklahoma.

  2. No, we opted to make this an online publication so there is not a single PDF version. But we do have a 6-page Talking Points version in PDF which you can find on the right hand side of the Online Guide homepage. Thanks for your kind comments about our work
