State Treasurer Scott Meacham briefs the media today on what the state budget looks like for the rest of the fiscal year and a look into projections for the 2011 fiscal year. The numbers are based on estimates from the state Tax Commission which go before the state equalization board on Monday. Tulsa Police and Fire fighters are now expected to loose more than 100 employees per department unless there is a major increase in sales tax income for the city of Tulsa. A final decision on the cuts is expected by mid-January. A late afternoon hearing is scheduled in Oklahoma County District Court, to decide if an order keeping the states new abortion law from going into effect will stay in place. Judge Daniel Owens will also hear arguments from the state to dismiss the case against the law and allow it to go into effect. The Corporation Commission has put on hold a decision on a new area code for the region now covered by 918. Numbers for the current 918 area are expected to run out in a couple of years. 8 more Oklahoma communities are now viewing OETA in digital mode. Conversions of the networks low power transmitters continues into next week with all conversions expected to be complete by the first of the year.
