OKLAHOMA CITY – House Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka, issued the following statement Wednesday in response to the Legislature’s successful overrides of Gov. Kevin Stitt’s vetoes of four budget bills.

“The Legislature stood united to override the deep cuts these disappointing vetoes would have caused to our shared priority of public education. While we did not take it lightly, we strongly agreed the Legislature’s coequal constitutional powers had to be exercised to correct and override the governor on this matter.

With this issue resolved, we are moving forward together for the people of Oklahoma.” – House Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka

House Bills 2741, 2742, 2743 and Senate Bill 1922 are now law.
