"The Greg Treat Plan:"

  • "Real Reform to fight against ever-increasing property taxes."
  • "Creating the most business-friendly environment in Oklahoma. We must make sure Edmond and Oklahoma City remain the best place to expand, locate or relocate a business."
  • "Fighting back against any federal encroachment into powers reserved in the US Constitution for the State Government, or the People."
  • "Preserving and encouraging free-market principles in the delivery of our health care system. I oppose the federal takeover of our health care system."
  • "Protecting the sanctity of life and improving our foster care system as an alternative to abortion."
  • "Creating measurable objectives to gauge the effectiveness of government programs. This will help us to find the programs that are working and eliminate wasteful or unnecessary programs."
  • "Implementing incentives to encourage state agencies to cut spending."
  • "Improving education by empowering classroom teachers to teach their subject matter – not just to teach solely for testing."
  • "Reducing government spending. It is not prudent to increase the size and scope of government simply because of a temporary increase in state revenues."
  • "Fight, at every turn, against government taking a more active role in raising our children. Government is not the solution – all too often it is the problem."
  • "Above all, as your state senator I will support conservative, fiscally-responsible policies at the Capitol that will ensure our state is the best place to live, work and raise a family!"
