Numbers of the Day

From our friends at OK Policy:

· 28.5% – Share of Oklahoma adults without a high school diploma or equivalency who report going without medical care due to cost, versus just 6.6% of Oklahomans with a bachelor’s degree or greater

· 79 – Votes in favor of a $447 million revenue package to fund teacher pay raises and other priorities in the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Monday night. This is the first time the House has reached the three-fourths majority to raise taxes since that requirement was added to the Oklahoma Constitution in 1992.

· 5.9 – Number of days Oklahoma could run on only Rainy Day Funds. The national average is 19.8

· 67% – Percentage of Oklahoma likely voters who support raising income taxes on wealthy individuals.
