Print Friendly

On Thursday, Nov. 12, we filed a challenge with the Oklahoma Supreme Court that Initiative Petition 403–University of Oklahoma President David Boren’s sales tax increase proposal–violates the state Constitution’s single-subject rule.

Immediately after filing the challenge, we held a press briefing outside the Oklahoma Judicial Center, which houses the state Supreme Court. Below, please find all four items we distributed to members of the press at the briefing:

-Application to resume original jurisdiction (filed Nov. 12 with Oklahoma Supreme Court)

Brief in support of application to resume original jurisdiction (also filed Nov. 12 with Oklahoma Supreme Court)

-Press release

-One-pager outlining our alternative proposal for funding $5,000 pay raises for all current Oklahoma classroom teachers and hiring 1,000 additional teachers — without a tax increase and without hurting core state government services, such as education, roads, bridges, infrastructure, public safety or the safety net for the truly less fortunate
