Charity Inc.: Legislature has golden opportunity

Charity Inc.: Legislature has golden opportunity

Printer-friendly version

Last week, the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits endorsed the Step Up Oklahoma plan, encouraging the Legislature to consider a number of pieces of legislation and policy issues to shore up the state’s ailing budget. This was not without a great deal of thought on the part of me, my staff and our board of directors. As the Legislature convenes next week, it is imperative they hear from Oklahomans about how to create a budget that serves the needs of all Oklahomans.

The Step Up Oklahoma plan is one of several plans that does just that. It is a necessary, bipartisan solution to years of budget problems faced by Oklahoma.

While the center hopes to hear more details about how the revenue can be allocated, it especially appreciates the intention of making the budget whole. Nonprofits continue to see demand for services rise while resources dwindle.
