First term

Governor Keating set out with an impressive agenda for the state under his administration, with many of his initiatives passed, despite an often hostile Democrat controlled Legislature. Many of Keating’s proposals were polices designed for growth and reform for Oklahoma. These included education reform, environmental protection, tax relief, road building, economic development, public safety, and tougher law enforcement. Keating also lead the charge in privatizing the state’s teacher hospital system, created a public-private partnership to assure care for the indigent as well as a stronger medical education program.

Keating’s first major success was the passage of the first welfare reform law in the nation in 1995. The law, by 2001, had reduced Oklahoma’s welfare rolls by over 70%.

A law and order politician, Keating used his career in law enforcement to serve Oklahomans. He implemented tough parole policies and introduced the landmark truth-in-sentencing legislation. Keating also showed little amnesty when handling death sentence criminals, allowing many of those sentenced to death to be executed. These factors drastically reduced Oklahoma’s statewide crime rate. Keating also raised the salaries of Oklahoma’s state troopers from the lowest in the nation to the 24th highest.

Governor Keating has been at the forefront of tougher regulations on Oklahoma’s hog and poultry industries. Keating appointed a special committee to craft legislation to address the issue. His Animal Waste and Water Quality Protection Task Force studied the problem, and created a solution that both regulated the commerce of the industries as well as to protected the environment.


Keating’s greatest success of his first term come in 1998 when he become the first Governor in 50 years to achieve a tax cut in the state’s income tax. This combined with reduction in the sales tax, estate tax, and unemployment tax formed the largest tax break in the state’s history until that point. Keating’s policies and tax cuts created the greatest era of prosperity Oklahoma had ever seen, causing the creation of over 130,000 new jobs for Oklahomans. 1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean. ...

Second term

As the 1998 general election rolled around, Keating won in a landslide victory, becoming only the second Governor in Oklahoma history to win two consecutive terms (after George Nigh) and the only Republican to do so. Sworn in on January 11, 1999, Keating’s second term began with a progressive agenda, based primarily on education. In his 1999 inaugural address, Keating set four goals for Oklahoma for his second term: George Patterson Nigh (born June 9, 1927), was a popular Oklahoma U.S. Democratic Party leader, served as Governor of Oklahoma on two separate occasions. ...

  3. Insure one out of every three Oklahomans has a college degree by 2010, and
  4. Raising Oklahoma’s per capita income to reach the national average by 2025

Keating focused largely on education. He increased spending for common, vo-tech, and higher education facilities throughout the state and introduced charter schools to Oklahoma for the first time. His policies and recommendations on education to the Legislature lead to the largest investment, over $100 million, on higher education. Keating, in 2000, also raised teacher pay by over $3000 annually, the largest raise Oklahoma’s teacher had ever experienced.

Along with the agenda set forth in his inaugural address, Keating also tackled out-of-wedlock births, substance abuse, and child abuse. Enlisting state government, community groups, and faith organizations, Governor Keating organized the statewide initiative to strengthen marriage. Keating laid the groundwork for the movement to define marriage in the Oklahoma Constitution as a “union of one man and one woman.” The executive branch agencies that dealt with health issues were reorganized by Keating in 2000 admit a purge of legislative patronage to the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Great Seal of the State of Oklahoma The Constitution of the State of Oklahoma is the governing document of the state of Oklahoma, superseded only by the Federal Constitution. ...


Next on Keating’s list was a reform of Oklahoma’s antiquated worker’s compensation system. Keating, a staunch proponent of right to work laws, struggled to get his reforms passed while the Democratic legislature debated his measures. In reasons, Keating adjusted polices, made new appointments to Oklahoma’s Worker’s Compensation Court, and other measures to control Oklahoma’s rising worker’s compensation coasts. Despite his works, Keating would have to wait two years to see his vision fulfilled. In 2000 when Republicans gained many seats within both the Oklahoma House and Oklahoma Senate, the Legislature decided to put right to work laws to a referenda to be held in 2001. Keating’s six year battle came to an end when, on September 21, 2001, Oklahomans approved the measure into law. ... This article is about the year 2000. ...

As he had done in first term, Keating sought to grant broad-based tax cuts. To further reduce taxes, Keating won passage of an income tax break and of the creation of Oklahoma’s earned income credit system to benefit the poor. Also, under Keating’s auspicious, both Democratic and Republican leaders in the Legislature launched studies to examine Oklahoma’s tax system, with the purpose of overhauling the entire system. During the study, the complete elimination of Oklahoma’s income tax was proposed. An income tax is a tax levied on the financial income of persons, corporations or other legal entities. ...


Also continuing with his tough crime policies, Keating signed a major criminal justice bill that reformed Truth in Sentencing (TIS) to Oklahoma. This legislation extended TIS of previous administrations to insure that violent and repeat offenders would remain in jail. To represent this to Oklahomans, Keating issues very few pardons or paroles to individuals sentenced to long detentions or capital punishment. Truth in Sentencing (or TIS) is a collection of different but related ideas about justice and fairness in the sentencing of criminals. ...


In other legislative initiatives, Keating repeals a 31 year old statue involving the inspection of vehicles that had out lives its usefulness. He also granted state correctional officers a much needed pay raise. Keating addressed the problems faced in Oklahoma’s Tar Creek Superfund site by appointing a task force on the issue.


Keating's accomplishments included overseeing the largest road construction project in Oklahoma history, the first cut in the state income tax in 50 years, and a dramatic decline in the welfare rolls. He also led a successful attempt to win a public vote on right-to-work. Keating raised more than $20 million in private money towards completion of the Oklahoma State Capitol with a dome.
