Dick Rush, president and CEO of The State Chamber of Oklahoma, stressed the importance of economic development goals:
â€œIn the coming year, we need to focus our resources on developing an educated, skilled workforce that is ready to meet the demands of a global economy. We need to ensure that our infrastructure is strong and working to improve the health of our businesses."
