URGENT Special Session Alert

Action: 
Please continue contacting your state representatives to VOTE YES on the comprehensive budget plan contained in HB 1054x.
Summary:

This afternoon at 1:30pm the House of Representatives will vote on HB 1054x, a bipartisan revenue bargain identical to HB 1035x passed Monday by the Senate. The measure addresses the current $215M budget hole, provides varied sources of recurring revenue to help stabilize future budgets, and allows for a long-overdue teacher pay raise and state employee raise. 

The measure includes the following provisions:

  • A new $1.50 cigarette tax and tax on other tobacco products;
  • A 6-cent fuel tax increase;
  • An increase in the tax on low-point beer; and
  • An increase in the gross production tax on new oil and gas wells to 4% for the first 36 months, then defaults to 7%.

The bill is expected to generate $138M for the current fiscal year and $430M for FY 2019 (see the fiscal impact here). A teacher and state employee pay raise and restoration of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for low-income workers are contingent on the successful passage of HB 1054x. The teacher pay raise bill, HB 1055x, will include a $3,000 raise for all teachers, run through the state aid formula, and an adjustment to the minimum salary schedule.

What happens next:

HB 1054x will be heard on the House floor this afternoon at 1:30pm and must pass with a three-quarters majority. This will be a tough vote and it is imperative that House members know they have their constituents' support. Though not perfect, this plan is a step in the right direction for Oklahoma and its children and is a chance for lawmakers to keep their promise to our hardworking teachers. It is our best hope to avoid devastating cuts to core services. The reality is that there is no better deal available at this time. It is either this plan or a far worse deal, or even no deal at all. There is still much work to do, but now is the time to pass this compromise budget plan and bring the special session to a close.

Please continue to CALL / TEXT / EMAIL your state representatives to pass this comprehensive revenue plan.
