Oklahoma House District 93
Thank you for the honor of serving as your State Representative.
I’d like to give you a brief legislative update. As we move forward to the 2018 legislative session and another special session, we find ourselves yet again in a precarious financial situation.
I fought against predatory payday lending, the cigarette cessation tax and a state budget that shifts the tax burden from the wealthiest citizens and corporations to middle income families.
Many of you asked me to fight against the prolonging of wasteful corporate welfare.
HB1406 – Provides additional protections for our senior citizens.
I authored the following bills. They have been passed out of the House and are awaiting passage in the Senate.
HB1407 – Creates educational opportunity with a high school construction class.
Goals for 2018
We must pass a balanced, fair, & constitutional state budget. My upcoming legislation will help diversify our economy. This should create new sources of recurring revenue to fund important programs and agencies like the Advantage Waiver Program, mental health, disability, and substance abuse services. I am filing legislation to create new apprenticeship programs that will ensure Oklahomans are properly skilled for the jobs of tomorrow.
Please mark your calendars for a Town Hall Public Safety Meeting at US Grant High School on January 11, 2018 from 6-8 p.m. I, along with Oklahoma City Police Department and our advisory committee, will address your concerns and present initiatives to improve and keep our neighborhoods safe.
Please feel free to contact my office at 405-557-7371 if you have any questions or concerns about matters pending in the Legislature or need assistance with a state agency.
At my weekly community meetings. They are held on Friday mornings from 7am – 8am at Jimmy’s Roundup Cafe (1301 SW 59th St, Oklahoma City, OK 73119). We will enjoy a cup of coffee and discuss issues that matter to you.
Thanks again for allowing me to serve as your State Representative.~Representative Mickey Dollens
