OKLAHOMA CITY (OP) –
In a press conference last week, Sen. Glenn Coffee called for an end to “business as usual” in state government.
said Coffee, R-Oklahoma City. “It is time to put the politics of division behind us. Now is time to work with the Democrats, and take a truly bipartisan approach to voting Republican.”
From the Senate’s college bond proposal to the House’s workers compensation reforms, conflicts between the GOP and Democrats have marred the legislative process. Coffee said it was time for lawmakers to reach across the aisle, and work hand-in-hand to unquestionably advance GOP proposals.
“As politicians, we talk about ‘bipartisanship’ all the time, yet will still see some lawmakers trying to thwart the process with their opposing opinions,” said Coffee.
