DALLAS — Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry will serve as the honorary chairman of a group seeking to defeat a proposed constitutional amendment that would increase state funding of public education.

Henry said he agreed to be the ceremonial head of the One Oklahoma Coalition, made up of groups opposed to the proposal, because he had “major, major concerns” about State Question 744. He said it was a “no brainer” to oppose the measure that would require the state to raise K-12 funding to the average per-pupil level of surrounding states.
