The Three-Pronged Vision Sales Tax Program: An Argument in Support of All of It

Feb 29, 2016

On this installment of StudioTulsa, we are talking about the Vision program, which was recently approved by the Tulsa City Council in unanimous vote, and which is now slated to appear on the April 5th ballot. Our guests are City Councilors Karen Gilbert (of District 5) and G.T. Bynum (of District 9), who both describe the Vision program in detail why also explaining why they think it's vitally important for voters to approve this program. As noted of the Vision proposal at CityOfTulsa.org: "The program includes three components, which will appear on the ballot as separate items: a permanent sales tax for public safety, a permanent sales tax for transportation and streets, and a 15-year sales tax for economic development. This program will not increase the current overall tax rate of 8.517 percent in the City of Tulsa."
