Yes On 802 Campaign Overcomes Major Legal Hurdle; Awaits an Election Day

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK — Yes On 802 Campaign Manager, Amber England, issued the following statement today with news that language for the Medicaid expansion state question has been finalized. The measure received a record number of signatures from Oklahoma voters and opponents have opted not to challenge the ballot language.

“We’ve officially cleared the final legal hurdle in this historic effort to bring healthcare to nearly 200,000 Oklahomans and bring back more than a billion of our tax dollars home from D.C. every year. We hope that Governor Stitt will issue an official proclamation placing us on the ballot in the coming days.

“With a record number of signatures gathered from every single county in the state, it’s time to let the people decide this issue.

“Our grassroots efforts have shown us that everyday Oklahomans understand the importance of access to quality healthcare and bringing back our tax dollars from DC to invest in our communities and to help save rural hospitals.

“We are excited about the next phase of this campaign and look forward to delivering a victory at the ballot box for all Oklahomans.”
