Early projections show $612M surplus for Oklahoma in 2019


December 19, 2018

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Early projections from state finance officials show Oklahoma's newly elected governor and Republican-led Legislature will have a budget surplus of close to $612 million for the upcoming fiscal year.

The increase is due in part to an improving state economy and increased oil and natural gas production.
