Oklahoma's system of public assistance programs can be "complicated and unpredictable" for low-income residents who depend on it, according to a new report.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma lawmaker wants a comprehensive study of a compensation plan for state workers who have not had a raise in six years.

Rep. Leslie Osborn of Tuttle said Tuesday the study would help determine if a market-based compensation plan could be adopted for all state workers. The plan would bring state worker salaries closer to private-sector pay.
