A Senate committee has approved a measure to eliminate some 31 income tax credits. The bill, which stills needs action by the House before all lawmakers can vote on the measure, is part of an ongoing effort to raise new revenues for state government. The House has voted to over-ride the governor’s veto of the bill, opting the state out of National Health Care. The Senate takes up that measure next. The House also tried but failed to over-ride a veto of a bill changing financial reporting requirements for schools. Reports from last month now show money paid to the state on gaming proceeds from Indian tribes is up by more than six percent. That equates to nearly $11-million. People in wheelchairs attempted to corner members of the Oklahoma House of Representatives today to lobby for cuts to the states Medicaid program to be reduced or eliminated.

The House of Representatives takes up the issue of performance pay for school teachers while the state Senate votes against a series of fee hikes by the Corporation Commission. Fee increases that the agency was depending on to keep key divisions operating. The letters have started going out to school teachers, staff and administrators around the state, indicating that people will be losing jobs unless funding from the state improves. No new bills came out today to eliminate some of the more than 450 tax credits currently on the books. In-Depth tonight we talk with independent oil producers about the effort to keep their tax credits in place. Why those tax breaks are needed and would exploration in Oklahoma stop without them.
