The agenda will focus on enhancing Oklahoma City's business climate.
The largest group of new lawmakers since statehood are poised to make their marks.
Oklahoma City is fortunate to host sporting events, horse shows and other public events each year, and these events bring millions of dollars to Oklahoma City’s economy. However, there has been a push recently to enact legislation that could severely limit Oklahoma City’s ability to attract and host large-scale, public events.
The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber’s executive committee and/or board of directors recently voted to support the state questions that will appear on the upcoming November ballot.
The legislative scorecard includes information prepared by the statewide Research Institute for Economic Development (RIED) to identify elected officials’ votes on issues important to the business community.
The Nov. 6 ballot will be full of important elections at every level of government, including five state questions and a special election to elect Oklahoma City’s next Ward 7 representative.
The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber is partnering with the State Chamber’s Research Foundation for a regional forum in Oklahoma City on Oct. 23 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Oklahoma History Center.
