Education

As Speaker of the House of Representatives Steve Lewis was the author of HB 1017, the school reform legislation that influenced a generation of public school education in Oklahoma. Later, as a lobbyist, he helped draft and secure passage and full appropriation funding for the Oklahoma Tuition Equalization Grant Program. OTEG is a state grant program for lower income Oklahomans giving them a opportunity to attend a private college or university of their choice to obtain the educational skills they need to succeed in life. Steve has a thorough understanding of education law, policy and funding.
