OK Supreme Court Earns Editorial Praise for Upholding OTA Expansion Plan Financing

The Tulsa World editorial board applauds the Oklahoma Supreme Court for upholding a plan to “refinance state turnpikes and pay for several projects, including some that are critical to the Tulsa area.” The editors add, “The court’s ruling is not only legally correct, but in the best interest of the state. The ability of the turnpike authority to use its profitable roads — especially the Turner Turnpike — to help pay for other needed projects creates jobs and economic opportunity. It gets done what needs to get done and does it in the right way.”
