Smart Government

Kay understands government services are essential to the public good and also understands that our state faces budget challenges year in and year out. Instead of looking toward poorly planned โ€œconsolidationโ€ of these services, Kay believes we need a smarter, more efficient government which will balance the government services we need and the costs of those services.

Kay also believes the majority of our legislative leaders must stop passing frivolous and unconstitutional legislation which is being challenged in court and often times defeated. These lawsuits not only cost Oklahomans valuable taxpayers dollars, but as importantly, they erode the faith of all of us in the legislative process. Thatโ€™s why she has authored legislation to provide a fiscal analysis on every bill that could be challenged in court, so everyone knows the cost to the taxpayers before legislators vote on unconstitutional legislation.
