Greater Oklahoma City Chamber - Success protecting business at the Legislature

Success protecting business at the Legislature

Monday, June 1, 2015

Read about how business fared at the Legislature in this year’s 2015 legislative report wrap-up.

The Chamber succeeded in achieving its legislative priorities during a tough budget year in which the state faced an unexpected $611 million shortfall. These accomplishments included protecting key economic development incentive programs from elimination; creating a fair and data-driven incentive evaluation process; stopping overly broad gun legislation that would have led to high-economic impact events leaving the state; passing legislation to fund the completion of the American Indian Cultural Center; ensuring adequate funding for important state programs; and protecting Oklahoma’s thriving bioscience industry from harmful legislation.
