OKLAHOMA CITY – Members of Governor Fallin’s volunteer task force on economic development and job creation presented her with their report titled, “Bold Ideas for Oklahoma.” Taskforce members include private and public sector workers, CEO’s and job-creators from across the state. The committee was lead by Bob Sullivan, owner of Sullivan and Company, a Tulsa oil and gas company.
In the report, the task force identified areas and outlined strategies Oklahoma could consider to further improve the business climate in the state and attract more jobs and investment.
“I very much appreciate the leadership and service of the members of this task force,” Fallin said. “This is a great conversation starter on how we can make Oklahoma the ‘go-to place’ to do business.”
Suggested policies in the report include the elimination of the state income tax, the conversion of state fleet vehicles to compressed natural gas and improvements to state marketing and branding.
“This report is like a large ‘suggestion box’ for Governor Fallin and the state of Oklahoma,” Sullivan said. “We feel these policies represent some great options to take the state in the right direction.”
