OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — Thursday morning Oklahoma House Speaker Charles McCall will address the call by Gov. Kevin Stitt for a special session in October concerning taxes.
On Wednesday, the Oklahoma Senate leader, Greg Treat, spoke said the Senate will convene for a special session on October 3, but the agenda given by the governor is vague and that must be addressed.
McCall says the House has had a priority of cutting taxes the last several years.
He says he didn’t have any discussion or heads-up from Stitt or his administration prior to the call for a special session.
Governor Stitt is calling the Legislature to deliver on the following agenda priorities:
- A trigger law mandating that if a state or federal court finds that some individuals, due to their race, heritage, or political classification, don’t have to pay a state tax, then no Oklahoman will have to pay the tax.
- A tax cut that puts Oklahoma on the path to zero income taxes. This will keep us in line with surrounding Republican-led states.
- A measure that increases budget transparency to ensure that Oklahomans and their elected representatives have the ability and opportunity to see how their taxpayer dollars are being spent.
This is a developing story.
