Poll finds priority on saving

Henry's legislative agenda is supported, but voters tend to prefer building the state's reserve fund.

Oklahoma voters generally agree with Gov. Brad Henry's priorities but aren't necessarily eager to pay for them, an Oklahoma Poll conducted Jan. 27-30 suggests.

The poll, sponsored by the Tulsa World and KOTV-Channel 6, has a 3.5 percent margin of error.
