STATE OF THE STATE


Lieutenant Governor Fallin, President Pro Tempore Taylor, Speaker Benson, Members of the
Judiciary, distinguished members of the House and Senate, my wife, and my fellow
Oklahomans.

Before I begin, I would like to reference two special events. The first special event is that we
have Larry Dickerson back with us and I know you have honored him already. As the only
Governor to have served in both the House and Senate, I have got to say how splendid it is for
176                                    House Journal


us to celebrate our history by restoring the Senate chamber and now having fully and finally
restored this magnificent House chamber. I think all of you need to give each other an applause.

We come here every year to celebrate Oklahoma. To look back and to honor the things we have
done right. To look at the present and commit ourselves to the decisions we must make to have
a brighter and more prosperous tomorrow. And, to look forward to the future to ensure that our
children and grandchildren will remain in Oklahoma and enjoy the good life in a good land. We
do have a great land!!

From green country in northeast Oklahoma - the Tall Grass Prairie, to the sparkling granite
mesas of southwest Oklahoma - Quartz Mountain, this is a fabulous land. From the high plains
of the northwest - Alabaster Caverns, the highest place in our state - Black Mesa to the
ridge-lined, tree-lined wonderment of the southeast, the blue water of Beavers Bend. This is
one of God's natural beauty places. And our people are very special. A state of astronauts,
teachers, preachers and businessmen and farmers and ranchers and workers, enormous talent
from all walks of life who made Oklahoma what it is. What great people we have. This is the
state of Jim Thorpe and Will Rogers; Tom Stafford and Shannon Lucid; Angie Debo and N.
Scott Momaday; Vince Gill and Reba McEntire; Mickey Mantle and Steve Owens; Jeanne
Kirkpatrick and yes, the late great Carl Albert.

Before we begin our deliberations here over the next several months, we need to reflect on
those wonderful people who have made us what we are. We need to reflect on this great natural
heritage, our wonderful Oklahoma that has been given to us by our wonderful creator. Five
years ago, when I first appeared before you I outlined to you what I thought was necessary for
us to become an enriched society. Not only a better society economically, but a better society
morally. A society that our children and grandchildren deserve.

I said at that time there were four things that we needed to do to become rich. We needed to
reduce the size of government. We needed to reduce and eliminate artificial barriers to growth.
We needed to cut taxes and we needed to dramatically increase the number of college graduates
in our state. I said specifically those things were important because every society, every state,
every community that does these things, does better to reduce the size of government.

We are all government employees and we honor government. But, the reality is for so long and
too many years we increased government. We sent a chilling message to businesses that this
was not a welcome place. We need more private sector entrepreneurs. We need more private
sector jobs because that is where the wealth comes from. We, on the public side, consume
wealth, we do not create it. So it is important for us to do everything we can within public
policy constraints to advance the number of private sector jobs. I said we needed to remove
artificial barriers to growth. I focused specifically on a very expensive Workers' Compensation
system and the absence of right-to-work. I said also that we needed to cut taxes. To say to the
people of Oklahoma, the men and women who earn the money that we spend here as their
trustees. To give them an opportunity to hold those assets that they created and spend them and
save them and invest them in the way they feel they should do so - that they can enrich our
society as a result of the expansion of the economy that they made possible. And I said also that
we needed to dramatically increase the number of college graduates. We are 70,000 college
graduates short. In order for us to attract the high value, high wage jobs of tomorrow, we have
to have more college graduates in the information technology fields in engineering. I noted that
                         First Legislative Day, Monday, February 7 , 2000                 177


OSU and OU, combined, produce about 520 engineers a year. Yet, Penn State by itself
produces 3,600 engineers per year. We need to focus on the workforce, the workplace of
tomorrow.

Over the course of the last five years in a bipartisan environment, we have achieved a lot. Yes,
there will be squawking and squalling, there will be arm wrestling; there will be partisanship,
but that is not unhealthy to have Republican questions and Democrat answers and Democrat
questions and Republican answers. But when it is all over, it is Oklahomans that have to win.
When it is all over, it is important for us to do what is best for our state. Think of what we have
accomplished in a bipartisan effort. It really is quite significant.

It goes in the direction of those four things that I have talked about year after year. Things that I
think are necessary for us to become a more prosperous society. We passed Tort Reform. We
limited punitive damages to double actual damages in civil lawsuits. We said to small
businesses, "You are welcome here."We cut the income tax by a quarter point. We reduced
welfare by 70%. We said we are a rich enough society to help those who are physically or
mentally incapable by age or infirmities to take care of themselves. But for those who are
able-bodied, for those who can take care of themselves, they must too be full human beings.
And, we reduced the welfare load by 70%, one of the top rates of any state in the union.

We passed Truth-in-Sentencing. In 1995, the crime rate was going up and now the crime rate is
down in every category because of the actions of the bipartisan spirit of this
legislature - addressing the fact that those who are violent and those who are chronic should not
be let out. Those in the business of crime, we will not permit them to apply their trade. This has
worked. The crime rate is down virtually across the board.
We began the largest highway construction program ever in Oklahoma's history with no tax
increase and no scandal. We have taken the position that we as a state are going to build out the
infrastructure. You build it, they will come. We build it and they will come. We can bring
companies to our state who would otherwise not be here because of the absence of that
infrastructure. I can cite along the Kilpatrick Turnpike alone, Sprint, Williams-Sonoma, the
Hartford, three companies that have located here that are employing our citizens and providing
us an opportunity to take their tax revenue and use it for the purposes that you in this
Legislature feel are appropriate.

We passed together, the first Poultry Regulation bill and the toughest in the nation Swine
Regulation bill. We said that for the sake of Oklahoma's future, the quality of life in our State is
extraordinarily important. We say "yes" to agriculture. We say "yes" to the energy industry. But
we also say "yes" to clean water and clean air. Something that we know is essential for us to be
prosperous and livable in the 21st century.

We have reduced state employment by five percent by privatizing prisons and University
Hospital, putting entities on the tax rolls and celebrating the efficiency of a reformed
government. Yes, we have done a lot, but there is much yet to do.

One thing that I did not mention was in the arena of education. This last year we did take the
first tentative steps to raising the bar mightily in public education. Providing for a
well-educated workforce that is so necessary for this generation. We passed one of the top ten
charter school laws in the United States. We said to schools that were failing, bring in the
178                                     House Journal


college community,bring in the vocational-technical community and let them refer to the
school and make them work. We said to the parents who feel that the course offerings in their
schools are not satisfactory, vote with your feet. And we passed one of the top school choice
laws in America. We took the curriculum rigor that we had already passed and raised the bar,
four years of English, three years of math, science and social studies. Understanding as we all
must, that the future to a prosperous tomorrow is a good education. The future to a highly
productive tomorrow is a good education. We together said "yes, we are going to do that." But
these tentative steps, these first steps were just the beginning. There is the opportunity now, this
legislative session, to address the remainder and to finish the course.

I want to remind you of some of my long range goals that I set out when I appeared before you
in my last State of the State and my second Inaugural message. I said first that we must equal
the nation's per capita income by 2025. We must. Second, we would surpass the nation's ACT
average by 2005. We must. Third, by 2010 assure that 1 in 3 Oklahomans have a college
degree. We must. Fourth, we will reduce the divorce rate by one-third by 2010. We must. By
2010, we would cut the out-of-wedlock birthrate by one-third. We must. By 2010, we would
reduce drug and alcohol dependency by half. We must. By 2010,
we would cut child abuse in half. We must. But we did very little to address those specific
agendas that we could address here in this Legislature. This is not a moral crusade. Today, it is
a good citizenship crusade. For efficiency, decency, honor, goodness, truth and economic
success to take place, you have to address these moral dislocators. We must.

I would ask that during this legislative session you do the things we did not do last year. First,
approve the Covenant Marriage bill. Second, lower the DWI threshold to .08. Third, support
initiatives to expand drug enforcement and treatment, including drug testing in schools. And,
fourth, remove mutual incompatibility in grounds for divorce with children. A healthier
Oklahoma will be a more prosperous Oklahoma. Our goals are ambitious, and the steps we take
to meet them must be equally ambitious.

Our state is plagued, as all states and all communities are, with factors that hold us down and
hold us back. Tragedies that occur that we do not understand. Dislocation and discord that only
the heart can address.

With us today is Ron Holuby, the brave teacher who confronted a troubled boy with a
gun - whose bravery saved the lives of his students at Fort Gibson School. Let me ask all of us
to honor Ron Holuby.

We do not know all of the reasons for that boy's actions, but we do know what prompted Ron
Holuby to stand for right. He faced a problem head-on at great personal risk.

Can we do any less? Government cannot solve all of our social ills, but we can and we must
help create conditions that make honorable and responsible conduct once again the norm.

Over the last several months, I held five press conferences outlining the five agendas that I
would ask in a bipartisan spirit that this legislature address. All of those five agendas are
covered in the balanced budget.

First, is to make a capital investment in Oklahoma to build out our infrastructure. I propose a
                        First Legislative Day, Monday, February 7 , 2000                 179


bond issue to do precisely that - to address technology in the classroom. To address those
special economic development and tourism needs of Oklahoma, which are statewide in scope.
And also, to address the higher education capital needs remaining in our state things such as the
OU and OSU Research Center in Tulsa and the National Weather Center in Norman. After the
May 3rd tornadoes, President Clinton and the Congress both made a
commitment that the National Weather Center would be married with University of
Oklahoma genius and talent in Norman, provided that we come up with the money.
This will create jobs and research opportunities that will doubtfully expand the
economic prosperity of our state. We need to do it.

The U.S. Army Museum of the Southwest is committed to giving us that magnificent collection
of Native American regalia, the soldiers, the weapons, and the uniforms of the soldiers of the
plains. They will donate the land and they will give us the collection. They will provide a
lifetime of curator service if we will only build the building.

The Museum of Oklahoma History in Oklahoma City to celebrate the history and tradition, the
genius of Oklahoma. These are the things that we need do and must do if we are going to have
the kind of destination sites that Henry Kravis,former Tulsan, spoke of when he chaired our
first Growth Summit in 1995. But there is more, it is essential for us to tie in every single
school to the Internet. Every single school to the high tech communications highway which will
permit every single school, no matter how remote or how poor, no matter how sparsely
populated, every single school so children can have a distance learning opportunity. There can
no longer be the excuse, we could not teach fine arts, we could not teach upper math, we could
not teach upper science, we could not do the things necessary to have a well-educated
workforce because we simply could not get the teachers. In today's world, we can pipe in the
instruction in a distance learning environment.

A cancer center...We are the only state or at least one of the very few states that does not have a
public supported research center for cancer care and treatment. In my judgment, that is a good
example of where some of the tobacco revenue can be spent.

Secondly, workers' compensation reform. To help Oklahoma workers, those that are sick and
injured and to encourage growth. The workers' compensation system in our state, even though
we have made some modest progress over the last several years, is still too expensive, is too
time consuming. Interestingly, it provides a lot of cost at the front-end to small business in
Oklahoma, but very little benefit to the injured worker. That benefit, as you all know, is
frequently delayed and delayed and delayed. I ask you to address that issue.

Let me share with you pieces of several letters from companies around our state that have
something to say about what we need to do this session.

Here is a letter from Glass Trucking in Newkirk: It says that the enclosed figures show that we
probably could readily build new facilities in a few years with just the savings on workers'
compensation. Glass Trucking finishes by saying if Glass were based in Kansas, which is only
thirteen miles North of Newkirk, we would save this year alone, $24,871. Why do we tolerate
this?

Michelin in Ardmore: Over the years, our cost for handling workers' compensation claims in
180                                    House Journal


Oklahoma has been multiples of the cost for other states. Our experience in Oklahoma is still
substantially more than the cost per employee in any other plant in the United States. Why do
we tolerate this?

American Airlines in Tulsa: In 1995, the average cost of the claim in Oklahoma was more than
double the average claim cost for all other states combined. While the average cost per claim in
Oklahoma has decreased by 17% since 1995, it is still almost one and a half times higher than
American Airlines overall average plan cost. With the exception of the other expense category,
average costs for each component in Oklahoma are higher than all other
states combined. Why do we tolerate this?

Love's in Oklahoma City: workers' compensation cost in Oklahoma are still out of control and
significant reform is truly needed. In Arkansas, our claims cost are 25% of the claims cost in
Oklahoma; in Colorado, our claims cost are 63% of the claims cost in Oklahoma; in Kansas our
claims cost are 76% of the claims cost in Oklahoma; in New Mexico, our claims cost are 60%
of the claims cost in Oklahoma; and in Texas, our claims cost is 64% of the claims cost in
Oklahoma. Why do we tolerate this?

YORK in Norman: As you are aware, YORK International is a significant employer (over
1,000 employees) and investor in Oklahoma. Their regional headquarters is in Norman. We are
continually reviewing and assessing the cost of operations in all locations, as demanded by
today's competitive world. The present level of workers' compensation cost is a major
detriment to our ability to be competitive in our Oklahoma operations. Their letter concludes,
without reform the state will drive existing and prospective employers into a more insightful,
realistic cost environment. That is a euphemism for we will or we
will not expand. They conclude. If the workers' compensation legislators choose to keep their
heads in the sand, then it will ultimately bury them and the state's economy. Why do we permit
this?

I have presented, in this document, the funding to transition from a judicial system to an
administrative system. Remember, we are only one of three states in the Union that still has a
very expensive judicial system. This system will create an administrative system that handles
claims fairly, fully, and efficiently. The administrative facilitator will handle those claims
promptly and locally. Disputed claims will still have a court recourse through a
magistrate system, but with attorney fees capped. Let me say again, it is essential that we not
only build out the infrastructure of Oklahoma, but that we address those things that will hold us
back. In part, those are the high costs of workers' compensation.

Third, save rural Oklahoma and help all Oklahoma grow. Over the last ten years, we created
over 300,000 jobs in Oklahoma. Of those, 140,000 were created in the last three and a half to
four years. That is the good news for Oklahoma. The challenging news is that most of those
jobs were created in the urban areas. Rural Oklahoma has been left out and left behind. What
matters here is to challenge the culture of a low per capita income. Because a low per capita
personal income means a lack of productivity and a lack of education. Rural Oklahoma is the
piece that is most left out. Listen to these figures: Oklahoma County has 92% of the nation's per
capita income; Tulsa County has 108% of the nation's per capita income, but then it begins to
slide. These are only a representative sample of our counties. Our people are paid less than the
people who live across the borders, paid less than they should be paid. Our people, our working
                         First Legislative Day, Monday, February 7 , 2000                  181


men and women who ought to be paid more money. McIntosh County 59%, that means that
they make 59 cents on the dollar. People in the average of the United States make a dollar on
the dollar. Beckham County - 68%; LeFlore County - 61%; Atoka County - 51%, half of the
nation's salary at-large; Caddo County - 58%; and Coal County with 48%. With less money and
less people, we are a lesser state. We want our children and grandchildren to remain, but
remember this; that they will only remain if they make a good living. Money and jobs are
fungible, they will leave if they do not think that they can earn what they deserve in our state.
We must address those things that hold us back and keep us poor. This will only happen if we
aggressively focus on what ails rural Oklahoma.

In this balanced budget, I have given you a series of initiatives to consider. I hope you will
honestly and promptly consider them.

First, we must continue to fund REAP. We need to do those things to provide an opportunity to
build out our infrastructure.

Second, we need to continue to fund the replacement of rural fire equipment, especially for
those volunteer fire services. Let's be realistic, if you can not provide fire service, you can not
provide insurance. If you can not provide insurance, you can not build a house or establish a
business. That needs to be addressed.

Third, we need to use some of the tobacco money to reimburse Medicaid for rural hospitals. Let
me tell you why. Right now, we have some 25 hospitals, many of them are the larger
hospitals - the acute care facilities that are on the verge of closing. Because we as a people have
made a decision to take care of those who cannot take care of themselves. But we have
expected the hospitals to take care of them. We reimburse them at about 49% of what we
should. So I am suggesting that we take $42 million of the tobacco money and invest in rural
hospitals and we will be able to match that by $100 million from the federal government. This
money, pumped into our rural hospitals will keep doctors, nurses, and health care professionals
in those cities and towns still working. And, most importantly, our citizens will be safer and
healthier.

We need to build out our rural telecommunications infrastructure. The partnership between this
state and Southwestern Bell needs to be closed. We need to finish it so that we can insure that
every rural community can have access to the Internet and high-speed transmission devices. So
anywhere we live, people can enjoy the fruits of the modern economy.

We need tax relief to provide us, as a state, 'pick up' state status on the federal estate taxes, so
that rural ranches and farms and small businesses, particularly, cannot be imperiled. We need to
focus efforts of the Oklahoma Housing Finance Authority on rural communities.

Lastly, we need right-to-work. We need the right to vote on right-to-work right now and it
should be on the ballot in November. Also, we need to finish the road building program that we
started. We need to complete it. This budget provides for $62 million so that we can finish out
that infrastructure. Let me tell you, and all of you that I have worked with on economic
development issues know this to be true. When we make a commitment on a company to locate
as we did with Family Dollar in Duncan, we need to be able to say to them, we will finish the
roads that we promised you. Not to carry our commitment is to say to those who would expand
182                                     House Journal


here or locate here, do not listen to what we do or for
that matter do not listen to what we say. We cannot have that, we need to finish the road bill.

Fourth, tax policy. It is time to give back the money the people earned. It is theirs. They
earned it. We did not. They should be given the opportunity to save it, to invest it, or to spend it
the way they wish. Let metell you what that will do. It will generate further tax revenue as a
result of spending decisions made, not by us, but by our people. I propose over the next five
years that we reduce the state income tax by a quarter point a year every
year for five years to bring it from 6 3/4% to 6 1/2% this year. Today, in Oklahoma, the full 6
3/4% income tax rate kicks in at $10,000 for a single person and $21,000 for married couples.
This is not tax relief for the rich. This is tax relief for the average Oklahoman who desperately
needs this money to buy groceries, to pay for a child's college education, to pay for an illness or
to pay for things that he or she would like to do because this is their money.

We need to reduce the destructive estate tax burden on our family farms and businesses by
making Oklahoma a pickup state, by bringing our estate tax levels in line with federal
exemptions.

We need to pass REAL auto tag reform. By that, I do not mean the kind of reform that was
attempted last year that I vetoed because it raised taxes on half and lowered them on the other
half. That is not real reform. The proposal I have here is a $68 million tax cut for all
Oklahomans who drive. For the first five years, you will pay $85 for your tag; the second five
years, you will pay $45 for your tag; and the third five years and beyond, $15. This is real
relief.

Fifth, comprehensive education reform and raises for Oklahoma teachers. Last year we made
a real good start with House Bill 1759. We said to prepare the work force for a competitive
market place for the 21st century we need to raise rigor. We need to encourage young children
to take tough courses, rigid core subjects. We need to remove athletics out of the school day
and require math, science, English, social sciences, language arts, fine arts and all of those
things that make for a well-educated populus. We took those first steps.
We passed charter schools and school choice laws. We did require four years of math and three
years of English, science and social studies. We passed the new academic performance index to
measure school performance. We were recognized for this. Education Week called our
curriculum reforms, specifically noting what we did with HB 1759, "the most significant" in
America...we got an A-. We must not waterdown the curriculum if we need to raise the bar
even more so. That bar needs to be raised to attract high-valued jobs to Oklahoma and to
prepare our young people to fill those high-valued jobs. They are for us. They are our children
and grandchildren. They are the ones that deserve them. The only way we, together, can get
them to Oklahoma is to raise the bar to make them come.

Let me tell you about Jason Sanders. He went to Tulsa Memorial High School, a public school.
He asked to be challenged. He attended the University of Oklahoma and he demanded to be
challenges there too. Today, he is Oklahoma's newest and proudest Rhodes Scholar. Once
again, OU is in the Top Ten, this time in production of Rhodes Scholars. At this time I would
like to introduce our newest Rhodes Scholar, OU's own Jason Sanders, his family and President
David Boren.
                        First Legislative Day, Monday, February 7 , 2000                183


Several years ago, I was asked by President Clinton to accompany the other governors and one
CEO per state to Palisades, New York to discuss the future of public education and education
in America. At that time Lou Gertsner, the chairman of IBM made a very prescient comment.
He said, "the distinction between the 21st century will not be between the haves and the have
nots, they will be between the educated and the uneducated."

Recently, I participated in the ribbon cutting of Boise Cascade Office Products in Norman.
Those are good jobs, not high tech jobs, not extraordinarily well-paid jobs, but good jobs that
we need in Oklahoma. As I do in every case where we lose an economic development prospect
or we gain one, I ask the CEO of the company to tell me the number one reason why you are
here. The President of Boise Cascade said the number one reason we are here is because 48%
of the people of Cleveland County have college degrees. What does that say
to us? That says to us that the work force of tomorrow must be better educated.

I presented to you, within the confines of this balanced budget, LearnPower. A series of
initiatives to push us ahead, to catch up and go forward. To continue to strengthen the academic
curriculum, especially in middle school. Six hours of academic study each day in secondary
grades. School bonds for technology. Advanced placement programs for every student who
wants advanced placement. No more remedial classes in four-year regional
universities. Stop all forms of social promotion. Testing in math and reading in early grades.
Remedial after school and summer programs for those who need help. All of this, by the way,
is funded in this budget. Forgivable loans to teachers training in crucial subject areas. Sweeping
deregulation, focusing state mandates only on those matters that contribute directly to learning.

Merit pay - To recognize that if a school achieves and if rigor results in higher academic
achievement, we provide merit pay to that school to be divided to education instructors, those
who provide the course work in the classroom. Bonus pay - To recognize the marketplace and
there are some professions and occupations that are high paid, high wage position. To get
people to serve in education, we have to pay more for those professions. And, we need fair, but
prompt removal of incompetent teachers. And also, $2,000 across the board for excellence in
Oklahoma teaching.

Let me repeat something that everyone of you know, but I want to repeat it. School is first of
all about learning. I want to read you a statement, "Accountability rests on achievement.
Achievement rests on the curriculum. The curriculum rests on the ability of qualified, dedicated
teachers who can successfully carry out the objectives of the curriculum." Who said that? Not
some elitist school reformer, not someone who wanted to impose "unfunded
mandates" on our school. No, who said that was Mitsuye Conover, Oklahoma"s Teacher of the
Year from Bartlesville High School and a Finalist for the National Teacher of the Year, who
joins us today to celebrate education and instruction in Oklahoma. Please stand, Mitsuye to be
recognized.

Let me say something about administrative cost because we have read a lot about
administrative costs. In 1996, Oklahoma ranked third in percent of school dollars spent on
district-level administration (4.16% versus a national average 2.30%). District-level
administration is not bus drivers, counselors, food service workers, or anything, but the central
office staff of the superintendent. That is what district-level administration is. If we were to
reduce, district-level administration in Oklahoma just to the national average,
184                                     House Journal


we could put an additional $52 million into teacher pay raises. If we were able to move to the
national average in general administration at the district level, we would be able to give every
teacher in the state, in addition to the $2,000 provided for in this balanced budget, an additional
$1,300 per teacher.

Here are some examples of our challenge: Seven Oklahoma school districts are paying $1,000
per student just for district administration. Another 73 school districts pay $500 per pupil just
for district administration. One district, with less than 2,000 students, pays $718,000 for district
administration, that includes $87,000 for the superintendent, $73,000 for theassistant
superintendent, and $474,000 for nine coordinators. Another spends more than $300,000 on
assistant superintendent salaries alone. One district has 91 students and a $100,000 district
office budget. Another has 83 students. The district office costs $109,000, more than $1,300
per student, nearly one-fourth of what we pay as a state to educate our young. Oklahoma has 31
school districts with less than 100 students each. They educate just 2,100 students between
them and spend almost $1.5 million in district administration.
It is simply not responsible. It is irresponsible leadership for us to just add more money without
determining what is coming out the other end and how that money is being invested. These are
our taxpayer resources. We need to look at this. This is not about consolidation. A school can
have its identity. A school can have its life. A school can have its athletic teams. A school can
have its unique instruction. It just does not need all of those white shirts in the superintendents'
offices.

Some districts are already setting a good example and they are not all suburban ones. If they
can do it, anybody can. For example, Graham Schools in Okfuskee County spend just $61 per
pupil on district administration. Blanchard, Hennessey, Carnegie and Lindsay - all are smaller
districts that have done a significant job in controlling district administration costs - not
site-based and, again not the school bus drivers, the maintenance workers, the cafeteria
workers, and the counselors, but district administrative overhead. They understand, these
school districts, that spending more on schools does not mean spending more on fat, but more
on learning muscle. Because that is all that matters. This is not a Republican or Democrat issue.
It is about finding ways to spend more wisely and efficiently. Can anyone of us,
straightfacedly, justify spending more on support than on instruction?

When I was before you four years ago, I proposed that the highest paid person in a district
should be the superintendent, then the principal, and then the master teacher. I still feel that
way. The money should go for instruction. The money should go for instruction. The money
should go for instruction!

I want to return to my original theme, "Oklahoma yesterday, Oklahoma today, Oklahoma
tomorrow." To embrace in our past that which is worthy of being embraced, and to recognize
the challenges that we face so that tomorrow we can have a more prosperous society, a better
society, a moral and decent society, economically and well-educated society.

It is a struggle. The contrast between the old Oklahoma and the new, between poverty and
prosperity, between ignorance and education. This is a battle we must join. It is not going to be
easy. There are those who are very well meaning who simply do not understand the changing
world, that the fleet of foot academically and the best prepared academically will be those who
will win. We need to emphasize and energize the creation of that model and the
                         First Legislative Day, Monday, February 7 , 2000                   185


implementation of that growth and prosperity. The old Oklahoma versus the new.

Many of you were circulated a letter from a superintendent who I am sure is well-meaning and
decent, but it represents the old Oklahoma thinking that must cease. This is not the Oklahoma
that I want to see. Listen to this letter: It was circulated to generally all of you. "The majority of
students," he writes, "will not benefit from additional math, science, language arts, or history
classes. I do not understand the push for all students to take core curriculum." Students were
taught in his days and in an earlier life, horticulture, lawn care
and service skills. "This seems to be appropriate for me," he writes. He completes his letter by
saying that 14% of the job market needs college degrees. (Remember, 68% of our students
graduate high school and go to college) "Are we really doing what is best for the students in
Oklahoma or the nation or are we merely filling Mr. Boren or Dr. Brisch's plates? he writes. He
cites with approval a letter attached that has this incredible statement. Think the old Oklahoma
versus the new. Think of your children when this statement is read. This is an education
professional, cited with approval by one of our superintendents and circulated to you members
of the legislature: "One must ask itself at one point what our country would look like if all the
students met the high standards and vision in the nation's at-risk report. Who would serve the
meals, build the shelves, make the beds and clean the toilets? he questioned You contrast the
old Oklahoma with the new Oklahoma.

You will enjoy this advertisement from the Asian Wall Street Journal. You almost chuckle
when you read this, thinking that it could never appear in a paper in the United States.
Remember, 3% of the world's population is not forever. It is because we beat the other guy.
Here is the advertisement from the Asian Wall Street Journal for Siemens. It says, "Today's
hobby could become tomorrow's production challenge." Here, you see a picture of an Asian
father looking over his son's shoulder. This ad says as follows, "As a teenager, you
probably had a lot of fun building and designing your own printed circuits. Youhad all the time
in the world to solder the various components onto a PC board and in the end you were excited
and proud of your accomplishment." This should be the new Oklahoma. Let me tell you, ladies
and gentlemen, these are the people with whom we are in competition.

It is time for the chart. This chart examines the competition we face from the six states around
us, comparing Oklahoma's rural border to our neighbor's rural borders. How do we compare
with Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Missouri, and Arkansas?

How do we compare with the six states around us in per capita income? Because that is what
it is all about, so that we can encourage our young people to remain here and for business to
come here because they can get high quality workers because they are paying high quality
salaries. In blue are the only counties in Oklahoma that adjoin the land or water border of
another state and have a higher per capita income. Those are Grant County, in the north, and
Washington County. Washington County because Phillips Petroleum is there.
Grant County because the people are great. Those are the only two counties in the state.

In yellow are those counties with mixed messages - some across the border are a little more,
some across the border are a little less.

The red is our challenge. It is not our curse, but the red is the challenge of the legislative
session to address. In red are those counties that have a lower per capita income than the county
186                                    House Journal


directly across the border. Look-virtually every county facing Arkansas in far eastern
Oklahoma has a lower per capita income than the county right across the border. Arkansas
remains a poorer state than Oklahoma, the richest part of Arkansas is right across the border.
Go to Fort Smith; look east, you see light, look west, you see darkness. We need to ask
ourselves why.

Look at Texas in red. This is rural county to rural county. With virtually every single county
adjoining the Oklahoma/Texas border, Texas has a higher per capita income, some much
higher. Hemphill County, Texas, has 104% of the nation's per capita income, rural to rural. The
only county in the entire state of Oklahoma to match that is Tulsa. Wheeler County,
Texas - 98% is rightacross the border. Harmon County, Oklahoma is 64%. Jackson County is
66%.

Same sky, same air, same clouds, same moon, same sun, same stars, same language, same
people, same culture. What is it?

Government. It has failed to do what needs to be done. Government.
Ladies and gentlemen, there is no other explanation. Our people are wonderful people. You can
not stand, as all of us did, after April 19, 1995 or May 3, 1999, of last year and not see our
people as being extraordinarily gifted and good people. Efficient, brave, true, and conscientious
people. How can we accept this?

Tomorrow must be better than today. We can not and will not accept this. We can with pride
beat Texas in basketball and sometimes in football. We can, with pride, win in athletic contest
in which we are engaged, but we cower and are intimidated when it comes to economic
development. We cannot say to our children and grandchildren that the status quo will remain.
It cannot. We must say "no" to being the sixth poorest state in the Union. We must say "no" to
being the 28th state in population and 44th in income. We must say "no" to having to remediate
38% of our children who go from high school to college and have to be remediated in basic
subjects. We need to say "no" to ACT scores that are below the national average.

We must, in this legislature, say "no" to out-of-wedlock births, to too much divorce, to violence
and drug abuse. Because if you do not, who will?

We are all term limited. The sand is slowly leaving the hourglass. All of us will be here just a
few more years. But, it is essential, Democrats and Republicans alike, that in this legislative
session we address those issues that hold us back. Build out our infrastructure, complete our
highway network, dramatically raise the bar in education, reward qualified, competent and
superb teachers, cut taxes, pass right-to-work, fix the workers' compensation system and do all
of those things that states around us have done to their great credit and advantage. We are too
good to be so poor. We are too talented to accept these statistics. Tomorrow's children and
grandchildren must look back upon us with affection and respect because of what we did here.

In this new chamber, let us commit ourselves to an agenda that is a "tomorrow" agenda and no
longer the same, the same, the same, that gets us somewhere, somehow, someplace. We cannot
do it. This state belongs to the people. We, in this isolated moment in history, represent the
people. For the people's benefit, we need to strike for them, strike for the future and do great

things for Oklahoma this year.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
