A leader in the national and global economies
To provide economic opportunities to Oklahoma families and stop the brain drain from the state, Gov. Henry is transforming the state’s economic structure to a knowledge-based economy. The governor wants to make Oklahoma the “Research Capital of the Plains” by creating a $1 billion endowment to fund cutting-edge research projects across the state. Gov. Henry helped create the endowment this year, but legislators have yet to set aside enough funding for it. The governor wants to reach the $1 billion mark by 2010.
