In the last three years, lawmakers gave away over $1 billion in tax breaks to oil and gas companies. Meanwhile, Oklahoma led the nation in cuts to education.

Hi, this is Jane Doe, and I live in your district at 432 Elm Street in Watonga, zip code 73772.I’m calling because it’s time to put students, schools, and families before special interest tax giveaways. The budget has been balanced on the backs of working families for far too long. It’s time to restore the gross production tax back to 7 percent so oil and gas companies pay their fair share. I understand your job is hard, but it is not impossible. Thank you, my phone number is __________if you have any questions. Goodbye.
