Our three-part series of economic forums starts tonight in Tulsa.

StateImpact Oklahoma is taking the show on the road tonight. First stop: Tulsa.

We’re hosting an economic forum with lawmakers and academics — and you’re invited!

The town hall-style event will focus on the economy and budget priorities for the upcoming legislative session, which starts Feb. 6.

We’ve got two legislative leaders and a think-tank academic on tap for tonight, so come ask questions, get involved, and make your voice heard.

Have a state budget question but can’t attend tonight’s event? Send your inquiry to me and I’ll ask for you: jwertz@stateimpact.org

State lawmakers spend your money, after all.
