EDMOND, Okla. – Lawmakers are trying to find ways to close a $1.3 billion gap in the state’s budget.
Public schools, the state’s healthcare and state agencies have been faced with budget cuts, but now Edmond officials say residents may see the effect of the budget crisis on their electric bill.
Edmond officials announced on Monday that state leaders were considering a move that would require the Oklahoma Municipal Power Authority to give a portion of its revenue back to the state’s general fund.
As a result, the company said that Edmond Electric customers would be directly affected by the move.
“We urge you to contact your State Representative and State Senator immediately to oppose this tax on Edmond Electric customers,” a message from the company read.
