House Rejects Omnibus Tax Hike Package

   Tonight the Oklahoma House stayed in a marathon session and suspended the rules in order to move on a massive tax and spending increase. the Bill had not yet been printed & distributed when the members were first asked to throw aside a key House rule in order to give the committee report a same-day floor vote

  Again, several legislators switched to "No" votes seconds before the roll was closed; so as to cloak their intent on the official record.

  The vote barely reached majority support. 51 members decided it was worthy of a ballot measure. The key House author, Leslie Osborn, is reserving her right to move to reconsider the proposal at a later time.
