State Superintendent Hofmeister comments on $51 million in Rainy Day funding


State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister made the following remarks today after the House of Representatives unanimously approved a $51 million supplemental to common education. 

“We are grateful to the House of Representatives for following the lead of Gov. Fallin, Speaker Hickman, Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman and the Senate in approving $51 million in Rainy Day funding for Oklahoma public schools. Districts are facing serious budget challenges, and this supplemental funding greatly helps offset the impact of February’s revenue failure and will be a great help as educators finish out the spring semester and fiscal year.” 

The measure now goes to Gov. Fallin, who has said she will sign.
