Senate Leader Applauds Positive Tone Of Henry’s
State of the State Address
Statement from Senate President Pro
Tempore Mike Morgan
“We heard from Governor Henry today a positive message
for Oklahoma. I was especially encouraged by the Governor’s
recognition that this session provides a great opportunity
for us to invest in the future of our state.
“I honestly believe that we have to make this session
about more than just the next election. We must, instead,
turn our focus to the next generation. I believe, from
what we heard today, the governor understands that.
“Specifically this afternoon, I noted areas where
the Governor’s agenda aligned with ours. He’s
endorsed a back-to-school sales tax holiday, the expansion
of the state’s premium assistance program and additional
resources for rural fire departments.
“I am certain there are many other areas where we
will be able to agree and I look forward to working with
Governor Henry in the coming session as we move Oklahoma
