Studies by the League of Women Voters of Oklahoma
The board noted that the position on fiscal policy had not been updated for many years, and that state revenue and budgeting affect many of the other issues of concern to the League, such as public education. Delegates to the June 2015 LWVOK Convention endorsed this recommendation.
The LWVOK Program Committee, headed by Karen Cardenas, has set the scope and timeline of the study.
The scope of the fiscal policy update will be to examine the sections of the state constitution, statutes and related materials that govern or affect how state finances are collected and disbursed including taxes, fees, tax credits, exemptions and incentives. A focus of this study will be to identify fiscal policies and practices the LWVOK would support or oppose.
