Oklahoma City, OK – Okla. House to review public safety agency needs

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma's legislative budget writers are preparing to question state agency heads about their performance during the past year and funding needs for the next.

Subcommittees of the powerful House Appropriations and Budget Committee begin meeting Tuesday with the heads of state agencies. The directors of Oklahoma's statewide public safety agencies are among those slated to discuss their needs with lawmakers.

In her State of the State speech on Monday, Gov. Mary Fallin said her office also will conduct performance reviews of state agencies to improve efficiency and align expenses with outcomes.

State law requires agencies to submit a strategic plan that includes goals and proposals for increased efficiency and improved services. But Fallin says they have not been carefully scrutinized in the past.
