State of Oklahoma secondary Archives: on Budget & Economy

Brad Henry: Our investments in Sooner State made recession better

There is no doubt that many Oklahoma families are struggling in these difficult economic times, but recent indications show that Oklahoma has fared better throughout the recession than many other states.

Beyond our abundant natural resources, Oklahomans have chosen to invest in this state over the last decade. Oklahoma City and Tulsa have revitalized their downtowns and--across the state--our investments in education and economic development are reaping dividends today.

Recent announcements give encouraging signs that our state's economy will continue to grow. In the last month several companies have announced new or expanded operations in the Sooner State.

Great things are happening in Oklahoma. Oklahoma's investment in itself--combined with low energy prices, a stable housing market and an incredible quality of life--are making it a relocation destination for companies from across country.
