RECAP from March 12 Meeting
At the March 12 meeting, Representative Skye McNiel was able to join OEDC members to discuss House Bill 2000, which passed in the Oklahoma House of Representatives 71 to 22.
OEDC supports HB 2000 to maximize the economic benefits of the Oklahoma Economic Development Pooled Finance Program by combining the Infrastructure Pool and the Economic Development Pool. This legislation is amending the original bill passed in 2009. This session we are attempting to combine the $100M Infrastructure Pool and the $100M Economic Development Pool creating a combined $200M pool.
