Budget cuts are forcing McAlester’s Department of Public Safety Office to close two days a week.
Representative Donnie Condit says 30,000 to 40,000 of his constituents are facing hardships because of calls for smaller government.
"The cutting of the income taxes was not very wise at this time. We should have put it off, but we didn't. And then also there are a lot of tax credits and tax loopholes and things like that that companies can get such as the oil and gas industries and the banks that have hurt the states."
