LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -University of Oklahoma president David Boren will hold a town hall meeting in Lawton Monday, Feb. 29, to discuss the state's education funding emergency.

Boren is in favor of a proposed penny sales tax to help fund education and raise teachers' pay. Supporters, who say the measure would generate around $600 million a year, are currently holding petition drive to get the tax proposal on the November ballot.

They have until May 16 to collect 124,000 signatures.

The discussion will kick off at 6 p.m. at the Cameron University McMahon Centennial Complex.

It is free and open to the public.
