Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin criticizes Washington for inaction
WASHINGTON — Gov. Mary Fallin on Wednesday chided Congress for standing still while states move forward on issues ranging from energy to education.
“Washington’s short-term thinking and continued inaction are hurting state economies, repressing job growth and, ultimately, hurting American families in every state,” Fallin said in the State of the States address sponsored by the National Governors Association.
Fallin, the group’s chairman, said “it is left to states to chart their own path and pursue their own policies where partisan gridlock has left Washington unable to address the nation’s serious problems.”
