Impact of 'Right to Work' in Tulsa

A lot of folks thought the Right to Work issue would boost the local economy. But as it turns out, Right to Work hasn't been as fruitful initially as proponents thought.

Voters put their stamp of approval on the Right to Work issue on September 25th. Since then, Chamber of Commerce officials say they have fielded phone calls from businesses interested in expanding to Tulsa. But they say the economy is holding most businesses back from expanding. Chamber CEO Jay Clemens says you wont see an impact from right to work right away. "Without a great expansion taking place in the economy, we're not going to see those opportunities like we would had a year or two ago."

Clemens says once the economy gets going again, he expects more businesses to expand into Oklahoma, particularly in the manufacturing industry.
