Hot Topic Luncheon – RSVP Now!

Stepping Down From Step-Up
So What Do We Do Now?

The Step-Up revenue proposal failed to pass – as did legislative attempts to build Oklahoma’s empty coffers.  The teachers took up the banner in April – and it’s still under consideration.  But what now?  Oklahoma legislators are stuck in the financial dead zone and we are all patiently waiting for a good omen.  Who will be stepping up next to carry on the good fight to pull Oklahoma out of the financial freefall?

League of Women Voters / Metropolitan Tulsa invites you to join us for an informative gathering and lively discussion at our April Hot Topic luncheon.

We will welcome David Blatt, Executive Director of Oklahoma Policy Institute as guest presenter.

Seating is limited to 50 – RSVP by April 11


Date:
April 18, 2018
Time: 12p-1p
Location: Baxter’s Interurban Grill, 717 S. Houston Avenue
