StateImpact on OETA: Possible Lawsuit Over Recently Signed Drilling Incentive

I was on Oklahoma News Report last week to discuss the controversial tax incentive for oil and gas drilling, which Gov. Mary Fallin signed on May 28.

The bill is likely to draw a legal challenge from an Oklahoma City attorney, who says it’s a “revenue bill” that was passed without some of the legislative burdens added to the Oklahoma Constitution in 1992 with the voter-approved State Question 640.

The episode first aired on May 23. StateImpact’s segment is embedded above.
