Event description

Description

Grassroots Oklahomans don’t want to miss this exciting opportunity to hear from experts across the state on how our budget process works. What are the pitfalls and obstacles in creating a budget for the many agencies and departments within Oklahoma. Do tax credits benefit Oklahoma citizens? What influence does the Oklahoma state constitution have on our budget process?

The Oklahoma Growth and Opportunity Summit 2018, focuses on the facts behind Oklahoma’s state budget, and the sharing of knowledge to arm citizens with a better understanding of the budget process. Once again OCPA (Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs), AFP-OK (Americans for Prosperity – Oklahoma) and Tulsa 9.12 Project, join forces to deliver a day long educational opportunity to explain the state budget, how departments and agencies are funded, tax credits and our state constitution.

Former Oklahoma U.S. Senator, Dr. Tom Coburn, will keynote the opening session.

** Lunch will be provided.
