Another Income Tax Cut Bill Stalls

Oklahoma Senate

The chairman of the Senate Finance Committee has stalled a leadership-backed bill to cut the state's income tax and then declined to explain why the bill has been laid over.

The decision Tuesday by Tulsa Republican Sen. Mike Mazzei comes one day after a separate income tax proposal Mazzei sponsored was soundly rejected by a House committee.

When approached by reporters after the meeting, Mazzei declined to respond to questions and said he had a pressing meeting to attend.

The bill must be approved by a Senate committee before Thursday in order to proceed to the full Senate.

The Senate and the House have two separate proposals to cut the state's top income tax rate.

 

Senate Bill 585

House Bill 2032
