(Original Resolution Prior To Amendment)Today, Saturday Nov 11th the OKGOP State Committee passed a resolution commending the courageous 22 Republican State Representatives who stopped the proposed largest tax increase in Oklahoma history. The motion to adopt the resolution passed 50-28. An amendment which passed struck three paragraphs and two words out of the original resolution. The State Committee also passed a motion to release the resolution on Wednesday, after Tuesday’s special elections.
On November 8, 2017, the Oklahoma House of Representatives voted 71 to 27 to pass HB 1054. Fortunately for the 3/4 Constitutional requirement for tax increases to become law, HB 1054 failed.
This author also wishes to commend the 5 courageous Democrats who chose to stand on Principle with the 22 Representatives in the Conservative Republican minority.
