Welcome to the Tulsa 9.12 Project
The 9.12 project of Tulsa is a conservative grassroots organization whose focus is educating, empowering, and activating concerned citizens; in pursuit of limited government, free markets individual liberty and personal responsibility.
It was brought to our attention this past Monday morning that a coalition of organizations would be speaking that morning (June 3), at the County Commissioners meeting in an effort to get County Commissioners to vote to overturn Sheriff Regalado's extension of the federal 287(g) program. A few of us made it to the meeting in which it was decided to postpone hearing most comments until Monday, June 10th, so that the Commissioners could better focus their time on the flooding in Tulsa County.
It has been a while since we last met and 2019 looks to be a busy one. Next week our new governor, Kevin Stitt is inaugurated - (links to inaugural events below), and we begin working together for Oklahoma's Turnaround. I am excited to see Stitt and his administration take the reins. I am hopeful we will finally have accountability and reform in state government. We live in exciting times!Join us THIS Thursday! Please join us and bring a friend!
February was a busy month for us with our regular monthly meetings, the Republican Gubernatorial candidate debate and the Oklahoma Growth and Opportunity Summit - you met candidates and heard from experts and gained a better understanding of our budget process. If you were able to attend the Oklahoma Growth and Opportunity Summit, thank you for your time and eagerness to educate yourself on the state budget. If you were unable to attend, I am posting links to the video taken of the GO Summit.
Last week was a busy week for us. On Monday, our state representatives voted on the Step Up plan - one of the largest tax increases in Oklahoma's history. After much discussion and debate the House cast it's votes and was defeated, 63 yea - 35 nay. Being a tax revenue bill required a Super majority vote, 76 yes votes were required to pass.
