Oklahoma Governor candidates agree on State Question 744
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma: Three candidates for Governor of Oklahoma participated in a forum held at Oklahoma City Community College, and all three stated their opposition to State Question 744. If the measure is approved, it will amend the Oklahoma Constitution to require the Oklahoma State Legislature to fund public education to at least the per-pupil average of neighboring states. Candidate and Lieutenant Governor Jari Askins stated that the measure was “well-intentioned”, but would present problems such as:
- Hurt early childhood
- Erode money for higher educational purposes
- Raise tuition and fees
Another candidate, Attorney General Drew Edmondson, questioned whether the measure, if enacted, would be enforceable. Edmondson also raised the issue that the measure would take money from other agencies. The other candidate, Senator Randy Brogdon stated that the measure would seize control from the legislature and would affect the next governor.
