Miller reported Monday that three of the state's other major tax categories grew in September compared to the same month last year — including income, sales and motor vehicle taxes.
Miller says collections from Oklahoma's gross production tax on oil and natural gas was down about 40 percent compared to September 2011. But that figure is an improvement from the 54 percent drop in August.
