Example Of Why Change Is Needed In Oklahoma

Mike McCarville has this report on Governor Brad "Pinwheel" Henry's latest flip-flop which could cost the state dearly in job growth and economic development in addition to other areas.

Oklahoma has suffered another blow because of Governor Henry’s veto of bipartisan lawsuit reform legislation during the 2007 legislative session, Senator Co-President Pro Tem Glenn Coffee said today.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Judicial Hellholes report published by the nonpartisan American Tort Reform Association (ATRA) gives Oklahoma a “dishonorable mention.”

“America’s job-creators pay attention to the Judicial Hellholes report. This is very bad news for Oklahoma, and it is the latest in a long list of damaging publicity Governor Henry created for our state with his veto.

This report creates another hurdle in our efforts to attract jobs and grow our economy,” said Coffee, R-Oklahoma City.

SB 507 passed the Senate and House of Representatives with bipartisan majorities during the 2007 legislative session, and included 18 of the 28 reforms Henry proposed in 2004.

Despite previous promises to support meaningful lawsuit reform, Henry flip-flopped and vetoed SB 507.

'Bout time for another big expensive fishing trip with your lawyer buddies there Gov'nr?
Time for another post on how Republicans are to blame for the bad economy in Oklahoma there Okie Funk?
Time for another cry to elect more democrats like Andrew Rice to continue Oklahoma's anti-business, anti-growth, anti-jobs policies?

Time to complete the change started in 2004, continued in 2006 and finalized in the upcoming 2008 election... taking control of Oklahoma AWAY from the socialists, the trial lawyers and the democrats that have been feeding them and giving it to the people for once in our history.
