STATEMENT FROM THE ASSOCIATION OF OKLAHOMA GENERAL CONTRACTORS
“The Association of Oklahoma General Contractors (AOGC) is elated to hear news of Oklahoma’s rebounding economy and record-setting revenue. Although our state’s infrastructure is a top priority and the most used function of state government, the AOGC will not be seeking additional funding in 2019.
We feel the new surplus should be used to help shore up the other core functions of our state government with more pressing needs. Education, corrections and health care are currently facing issues that must be addressed to ensure that we build and maintain our state’s most important resource – our people.
We are grateful to the legislature for keeping their promise to emphasize the importance of investing in our infrastructure even through the recent lean years. If our state is strong – in all areas – then we are confident infrastructure spending will grow to match it.”
– AOGC Executive Director Bobby Stem
