Proctor & Derby: We're All In This Together
From The House Media Division ~ Two Green Country legislators are working across party lines to protect taxpayer dollars and Tulsa-area jobs.
“Oklahoma taxpayers deserve to have more accountability over their tax dollars,” Derby said. “When a company breaks their word by taking state tax dollars and then moves jobs out of Oklahoma or overseas there should be consequences for that action.”
According to the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, the state has given over 110 million taxpayer dollars to companies that are on the Department of Labor’s list for outsourcing American jobs“Companies that are sending American jobs overseas or out of state should not be rewarded with taxpayer dollars,” Proctor said. “Last year much of the Legislature voted to cut our funding for military veterans at the same time they gave tax dollars to companies who are not keeping their word. This practice is wrong, unconscionable and it should be brought to an end.”
