WEEK 8: CHANGE OF DIRECTION Monday was a historic day: we managed to get 79 legislators, all 28 Democrats and 51 Republicans, to pass the largest teacher pay raise in history, HB1010xx. But part of it was nothing more than a bait-and-switch. What resulted after the Senate put the revenue streams on the chopping-block is NOT the bill I voted for. As I look back on it now, I can recognize the planning and deceit put into this charade. House members were given the language of this bill ahead of the vote so that we could read, review, ask questions and prepare for debate. We knew what we were voting on because this was the result of months of back-and-forth discussion. After all the back-and-forth discussions and analysis by various parties involved, we were told the funding was all there and the Senate would sign on with the House. Neither turned out to be true. The total revenue from the bill was supposed to be $637M and that’s what the House approved, but after the “off the top” revenue is taken out – something that was conveniently left out in discussions with House leadership - only $599M is actually available; since the total expenditures from the bill (teacher raise, support staff raise, public employee raise, healthcare, and education formula money) come to $674M, this bill is already $75M in the hole. And then, before the week is even out, they start removing tax revenue sources! The Senate held the bill hostage until the House revoked the $5 hotel/motel bill ($50M) and even after that the Senate declared that ball/dice had not been part of the deal, so that was dropped ($22M). So finally when the bill was signed by the Governor, THE BILL IS ALMOST $150M UNDERFUNDED! So what does this mean? Well since it has been signed by the Governor and is now law, it means teachers and support staff and public employees will get their inadequate raises and healthcare and schools will get their paltry money, but then in order to get the budget to balance (which by Constitutional decree the Legislature must do), the Legislature must either come up with new sources of revenue (they’ve shown themselves to be so ingenious in that area - usually on the back of the common man) or cut the budget in other areas, like mental health services, drug and alcohol rehab services, higher ed, infrastructure, corrections, whatever. On Monday, I voted for HB1010xx; on Thursday, I wouldn’t have touched it with a 10-foot pole. This is NOT what I bargained for and this is NOT what the teachers bargained for either. They will walk out of classes on Monday; they will stay out of classes I don’t know how long, but however long it is, I will back them and continue this quest to seek excellence for all Oklahoma children. On a positive note, we have accomplished “something” for Oklahoma, but until we can trust that our reforms are fully funded, our accomplishments will fall short of our goals.
