Glen D. Johnson, Chancellor of the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education
"I appreciate Gov. Fallin’s decision to not make across-the-board budget reductions, but to instead make budget cuts strategically in order to provide a lesser percentage cut for her priority funding areas. Clearly, we are pleased that higher education is one of Gov. Fallin’s priorities.
"With record enrollments on our campuses and a 27 percent increase in the number of college degrees earned this past decade, we will continue all of our efforts to assist our state in its economic recovery."
