OCPA statement on agency accountability agreement
After Gov. Kevin Stitt and legislative leadership announced an agreement on state agency accountability, Jonathan Small, president of the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs (OCPA), released the following statement:
“It’s great to see the governor and legislative leadership reach an agreement on this important issue.
“Oklahoma voters made themselves loud and clear when they elected Gov. Stitt: they want our state’s chief executive to have the power to do the job.
“In 2012, voters passed a constitutional amendment that changed the governance structure of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, which has proven successful. Today’s agreement brings similar accountability to critical areas of state government.”
