Tulsa Voters Will Soon Consider a $415 Million Bond for TPS

Feb 26, 2015

On Tuesday, March 3rd, the citizens of Tulsa will vote on a $415 million bond for Tulsa Public Schools. This bond -- which would not raise taxes -- is focused on four areas: facilities and classrooms, books and classroom technology, transportation, and libraries. As we learn on today's show, the bond is part of TPS's 20-year capital improvement plan to transform and expand aging facilities while also making schools safer throughout the district. Our guest is Bob LaBass, Director of Bond Projects and Energy Management for TPS, who speaks in detail about what Tulsa voters will be considering when they go to the polls on Tuesday of next week. Also on our program today, commentator Mark Darrah has some interesting biographical tidbits to share about the man who lost the White House to Warren G. Harding in 1920, James M. Cox.
