OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Gov. Mary Fallin’s plan to shield public schools and other state services from budget cuts in part by issuing up to $500 million in bonds for road construction is getting a frosty reception in the House and Senate. With just six weeks remaining in the legislative session, Fallin unveiled a revised budget plan for lawmakers to consider that would fill nearly all the budget gap through a combination of bonding, tax code changes and adjustments to the budgeting process.
