The budget crunch
The Tulsa World poll shows that while Oklahomans want something done about the sad state of the state budget, they're not in agreement on exactly what that something should be.
The state has no choice but to balance its budget it's a Constitutional requirement and what's most likely to happen is that state agencies will go through the motions of tightening their belts, and low-level state employees will be sacrificed to preserve the positions of their bosses. In other words, nothing new.Posted at 7:40 AM to Soonerland
