OKLAHOMA CITY (February 6, 2012) – The Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs (OCPA) released the following statement today regarding Governor Mary Fallin's State of the State Address. “I hope every Oklahoman realizes how truly remarkable this day is for our future,” said Michael Carnuccio, president of the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs. “ Today, on President Ronald Reagan’s 101st birthday, Gov. Mary Fallin exhibited the same bold, transformational leadership of Reagan in joining state lawmakers in the goal of advancing economic freedom to empower all citizens in our great state. No other governor in the country is working this boldly to provide tax relief, and no other legislature in the country is this passionate about eliminating waste and inefficiency and returning tax dollars to their rightful owner – the people. While the legislative process will now focus on the details of each plan, we can clearly see that when the dust settles, Oklahomans will keep more of their hard earned money next year.”
OCPA is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank that formulates public policy research and analysis consistent with the principles of free enterprise, limited government, and individual initiative.
