FISCAL STRUCTURE OF OKLAHOMA, AN OVERVIEW.
SANDMEYER, ROBERT L.
THE REPORT WAS DIVIDED INTO THREE MAJOR SECTIONS--(1) THE PRODUCTION POSSIBILITY CURVE WAS USED TO DEMONSTRATE THE PROBLEM OF RESOURCE ALLOCATION BETWEEN THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTORS, (2) STATE AND LOCAL REVENUES WERE EXAMINED IN TERMS OF FISCAL CAPACITY AND TAX EFFORT, AND (3) EXPENDITURES ON SELECTED FUNCTIONS OF GOVERNMENT IN OKLAHOMA WERE COMPARED WITH EXPENDITURES OF SELECTED STATES AND WITH THE NATIONAL AVERAGE. OKLAHOMA WAS FOUND TO HAVE A RELATIVELY LOW FISCAL CAPACITY BUT A STRONG TAX EFFORT. FINDINGS FURTHER INDICATED THAT (1) EXPENDITURES ON EDUCATION WERE BELOW THE AVERAGES FOR THE FOUR-STATE REGION INCLUDING ARIZONA, NEW MEXICO, OKLAHOMA, AND TEXAS AND THE NATION, (2) EXPENDITURES ON HIGHWAYS WERE ABOUT EQUAL TO THE NATIONAL AVERAGE AND SLIGHTLY BELOW THE AVERAGE FOR THE FOUR-STATE REGION, AND (3) PER-CAPITA STATE AND LOCAL EXPENDITURES ON PUBLIC WELFARE WAS HIGH. A MORE THOROUGH STUDY OF THE STATE'S FISCAL STRUCTURE WAS RECOMMENDED. (HW)
