"It is incredible and unacceptable that Oklahoma taxpayers are paying nearly six times the cost of what comparable groups are spending for that same process. This legislation is designed to fix that."
Rep. Jason Murphey, R-Guthrie, Author of Senate Bill 541.
A study stated that Oklahoma state government has a significantly higher number of full time employees employed to conduct these operations than peer organizations. Oklahoma processes 2,039 accounts payable occurrences for each employee while peer groups are able to account for 15,693 of these same processes with each employee.
The House approved Senate Bill 541 by a vote of 61-34. The legislation now returns to the Senate for additional consideration.
