Mike Seals - July 19, 2020 10:44 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY – Senate President Pro Tempore Greg Treat, R-Oklahoma City, released the following statement Friday regarding the decision of proponents of State Question 810 to withdraw their initiative petition:

“The whole idea that redistricting in Oklahoma is broken is a made-up narrative from out-of-state liberals looking to turn Oklahoma into the next California.”

“Democrats never complained about redistricting until Republicans were in charge.”

“Their complaints now are a totally transparent attempt by liberals and progressives to try and gain a political edge in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Senate will continue to carry out its redistricting responsibilities in a professional and thorough manner.”
