Business & Civic Leader Group Offers State Governance and Budget Proposal

A group of business and civic leaders, called “Step Up Oklahoma,” offered a proposal on Thursday to address Oklahoma’s tax and governance structure. In addition to government reform which includes a revision in the current limitation placed upon “revenue raising measures,” the proposal is designed to address the current budget woes facing our state. One of the revenue raising items included in this proposal is a tax increase on “cigarettes, little cigars, chewing tobacco and e-cigarettes.” For more information, contact Matt Robison.
