What’s to come for the children?

Posted by lboyd544 on February 5, 2011

It is reported that Governor Mary Fallin will announce in her State-of-the-State address Monday a 3-5% budget reduction for all state agencies. Education, health, and human services are slated for a 3% cut.
While relieved that those agencies will receive the ‘smaller’ cuts, we must remain mindful that those cuts mean services….and therefore lives and quality of life.
There are no easy answers.

I applaud the Governor on recognizing the vulnerability of children and families through the lower reduction. I pray for some realization of additional funding as this Session moves forward.

It will be another tough year where Oklahomans must pull together for the well-being of all and further proof of the “Oklahoma standard”.
