Senate Appropriations Chair comments on Feb. 16 revenue Certification

Tue, 16 Feb 2021 16:57:10 CST

Senate Appropriations Chair comments on Feb. 16 revenue Certification Senate Appropriations Chair Roger Thompson, R-Okemah, issued the following statement after the Oklahoma State Board of Equalization (BOE) met on Tuesday to certify revenues available for appropriation for the Fiscal Year 2022 budget. The amount initially certified by the board in December was $8.46 billion. The amount certified Tuesday was $9.64 billion.
“I am encouraged by the new numbers certified today during the Board of Equalization meeting. This speaks well of the economy in Oklahoma. Small business owners have been innovative, diligent, and persistent despite all of the challenges during this pandemic.
“Oklahoma has benefitted from federal dollars, which helped these numbers. I am very optimistic for FY 2022, but cautiously optimistic about FY 2023. This is not the year to spend every dollar. We need to have funds easily accessible if we have another surge in COVID cases-money that can be used to pay for more testing, vaccines, and other critical needs.”
