Tax Cuts http://publicradiotulsa.org en A Discussion of Both Tax-Cut Plans Now on the Table in the Oklahoma State Legislature http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/discussion-both-tax-cut-plans-now-table-oklahoma-state-legislature <p>While the debate in Washington, amid these dreaded days of "sequestration," is about whether to increase revenues or cut spending --- or somehow achieve a compromise that does both --- here in Oklahoma, the state legislature is (once again) looking to reduce tax revenues.
