OKLAHOMA CITY (April 29, 2009) House Floor Leader Tad Jones, author of Senate Bill 1111, comments on Gov. Brad Henry's questioning of the legislation's constitutionality in his veto of the bill today:
"The Legislature separated Teacher Prep from the State Department of Education and our state is known to have some of the highest quality teachers in the nation," said Jones, R-Claremore. "I hope Gov. Henry is truly dedicated to working with legislative leaders this session to reform education in such a way that we see the results we know our students and teachers can achieve."
