Local Oklahoma lawmakers were back in Ardmore on Friday to inform their constituents of happenings at the Capitol. State Representatives Terry Hyman and Greg Piatt talked about issues that came up this week.
They say money was allocated to the opportunity fund that will pay for the new MG Auto Plant. They also discussed funding for the new Bioenergy Center, which will involve the Noble Foundation.
Lawmakers say a big topic this year is teacher retirement. Crutchfield says the house and Senate want to get the retirement system back on track.
"I believe this year there's enough commitment to generate income to dissolve the shortfall over a period of 20 years."
Today's legislative luncheon was sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and other local corporations.
