OKLAHOMA CITY - Lt. Governor Todd Lamb published his 2012 Policy and Issues Report last week. The report contains ideas, advice and suggestions from Oklahomans from every corner of the state.
In the year since Lamb took office he has visited all 77 counties asking one important question, “What impedes your opportunity for growth?”
Attendees of Lamb’s town hall meetings have included people from all walks of life according to the report. The report is a distillation of what Lamb has heard from those who have attended his meetings.
The report has been presented to Governor Mary Fallin and legislative leaders before the 2012 legislative session begins.
The report is divided into two parts. The first is Lamb’s vision for the future of the state. The second contains the many ideas gleaned from his conversations while traveling the state.
The income tax, education, water and the creation of jobs are among the several topics covered in the report.
Lamb says the report is intended to spark “further debate and discussion” by legislators as they look for ways to make Oklahoma more competitive economically.
“Oklahoma is the best state in the nation,” Lamb said. “It’s time we compete with other state in something besides football.”
An online copy of the report can be obtained on the Lt. Governor’s website.
