NORMAN — A coalition that opposes State Question 744 brought its campaign to Norman on Thursday. One Oklahoma Coalition outlined its reasons for opposition during a press conference at the Norman Veterans Center.

“The sole purpose is to defeat State Question 744,” Jeff Wilson, One Oklahoma Coalition campaign manager, said.

Oklahoma voters will decide on the issue in the Nov. 2 general election. The Oklahoma Education Association stated the issue would provide funding for public schools.

According to One Oklahoma Coalition, if voters pass State Question 744, between 5,000 and 7,000 state employees would lose their jobs. About 20 percent to 25 percent of state services, including veteran care, would be cut.

“We think it is devastating to the state of Oklahoma,” Wilson said. “We’re looking at cuts of more than $1 billion if State Question 744 were passed.” FULL ARTICLE
