SB 1616 is the budget bill from 2016 and SB 860 is the budget bill from the 2017 regular session. Both contained around 50 million in cuts for the County Road and Bridge Fund, a total of 100 million. (*1) (*2)
While Representative Murdock voted in the 2017 special session against cutting the County Road and Bridge fund, he voted to cut it in the 2016 and 2017 regular sessions! (*3) (*4)
Yet he has the gall to claim out of thin air that his opponents in the Senate District 27 Special Election race support defunding County Roads and Bridges in his recent campaign mail pieces! Sadly Representative Murdock lacks the vital virtue that a Senator or Representative in the Panhandle and Northwest Oklahoma must possess, Truth.
I’m confident the Oklahoma Panhandle and Northwest Oklahoma desire this vital virtue in their representation.
