I think that the governor and her legislature should find a way to implement federal law, particularly one that would benefit nearly 200,000 state citizens. It seems to me that rational planning, thoughtful priority setting addressing state problems (i.e., education, health care and infrastructure), and putting in place a realistic and fair budget could accomplish great things for Oklahoma. Of course, this is my opinion, I could be wrong.
