OPEA Call to Action Spurs Thousands to Rally for their Jobs

An OPEA Call to Action has resulted in more than a thousand calls and emails to the state Capitol, urging legislators and the Governor to tap the Rainy Day Fund to minimize cuts and save jobs. The Rainy Day Fund is at its maximum limit, so no additional monies can be added at this time.
Early estimates show it may be necessary to cut 7-9 percent of an agency’s budget, which could result in RIFS and furloughs of state employees as soon as July 1.
KWTV Channel 9 in Oklahoma City ran a news package late Tuesday and early Wednesday, detailing those cuts. Click here to go to the News 9 website and view the story.
