Oklahoma Chamber Officials Announce Jobs Agenda

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Business advocates are promoting an 11-point plan to create more jobs in the state.

A statewide coalition of chambers of commerce released their jobs plan Wednesday. It focuses on issues that the state's business community will pursue during the 2013 legislative session to stimulate economic growth in Oklahoma. Organizations that developed the jobs plan include the State Chamber of Oklahoma, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber and the Tulsa Regional Chamber.

The agenda focuses on changing the state's workers' compensation system, fully funding state education programs and health care issues.

State Chamber President Fred Morgan says the state is fortunate to have leaders who focus on jobs and improving the economy. Morgan says the state should maintain that momentum and do more to make Oklahoma a good place to do business.
