Tell your two legislators to stop this year’s income tax cut, end unnecessary tax breaks and loopholes, and adopt targeted tax increases to close the budget hole.
Spending cuts will be devastating to the economy and to average families. Without new revenues, state agencies will be forced into drastic measures that would severely harm schools, nursing homes, rural hospitals, safety net programs, and other key services. Budget cuts will also take money out of the economy at a time when Oklahoma can least afford it. Oklahoma has sensible revenue options and lawmakers need to use them.
