In an interview Wednesday with Oklahoma Watch’s Brad Gibson, Gov. Mary Fallin said she hopes that cuts in education, corrections, human services and some other areas can be minimized. She will propose a solution to providing teacher pay raises, and will propose sharing services and overhead among school districts to free up more funding. She expressed concerns about the penny sales tax for education proposed by University of Oklahoma President David Boren. The interview provides a glimpse of what the governor will propose and talk about in her “State of the State” address on Monday, the opening day of the legislative session.
