Despite the national budget turmoil, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin is highly optimistic about the Sooner State economy. In this week's Capitol Report with News9's Amy Lester, CapitolBeatOK editor Patrick B. McGuigan says Fallin believes -- with strong evidence to back her -- the state is well-positioned to sustain impressive private sector growth, one of the nation's lowest unemployment rates and surging state government revenues. The governor told reporters this week she is fired up after visiting with officials at many national companies with Oklahoma employees. Tempering the chief executive's hopefulness is the continued national economic turmoil surrounding the federal debt ceiling and a potential U.S. government default. In other news, McGuigan describes emerging tensions between the state's largest labor union, the Oklahoma Education Association, and public school districts. The OEA's lawyer is threatening to pursue significant litigation to challenge repeal of Oklahoma's "trial de novo" provisions for public school teachers.
