TULSA, Oklahoma -

A governor hopeful makes a stop in Tulsa to unveil a plan he said will fix some of the state's education problems without costing tax payers any extra money.

State Representative Joe Dorman calls it "Classroom First" proposal. He said it redirects existing franchise tax dollars to buy textbooks, teaching material, and equipment.

"We have to start this going in the right direction. We have seen a shallow attempt to put money back into the programs. We have to have a dedicated effort. We have to start building that back up," Dorman said.

He said his plan budgets about fifty additional dollars per child.

Right now, the franchise tax isn't designated to go to a specific purpose.
