OKGOP Weekly Update: March 10th, 2017

Oklahoma Solutions
Today, the Oklahoma Republican Party is launching the OKLAHOMA SOLUTIONS project to bring the people's ideas to the Capitol. 

For the past several weeks, the Oklahoma Republican Party has been meeting with legislators to discuss the problems and hear solutions for Oklahoma. We have also been talking with constituents on the phone about what they want to see from the Party, our legislators, and our government.

WE LISTENED TO YOU and have created this project to make sure your voice is heard at the Capitol and that you are a part of OKLAHOMA SOLUTIONS.

We invite you to send us your ideas for fixing our budget, funding our schools, investing in infrastructure, tackling mental health issues, or any other solutions you have to make Oklahoma a better state for our children and grandchildren.

Our legislators are working to address these issues, but there are only 101 Representatives and 48 Senators. On the other hand, there are almost 4,000,000 people in Oklahoma who can help OUR state become a better place by participating in OKLAHOMA SOLUTIONS.

Whether you are a farmer, a small business owner, a stay-at-home parent, a student, or a National Guard reservist, send your ideas to solutions@okgop.com and we will compile the best ideas into a book and present it to the Legislature.

Quote of the Week
"If the great American people will only keep their temper, on both sides of the line, the troubles will come to an end, and the question which now distracts the country will be settled just as surely as all other difficulties of like character which have been originated in this government have been adjusted."
-President Abraham Lincoln
