OKLAHOMA CITY – Senate President Pro Tempore Greg Treat has announced his appointments for a tax reform working group to study proposals in relation to the ongoing special session.
“We’re committed to a serious, mature conversation about tax reform, conducted in a thoughtful way,” Treat said. “Oklahomans are facing economic challenges as a result of the failed policies of the Biden administration – our response must be methodical, taking into account not just the immediate picture, but how proposed changes could impact our state in the long run.”
Treat, R-Oklahoma City, said Sen. Dave Rader, R-Tulsa, will serve as chair for the panel, which will include:
Senate Majority Floor Leader Greg McCortney, R-Ada, and Senate Appropriations Chair Roger Thompson, R-Okemah, will serve as ex-officio members of the working group.
“The Senate is absolutely committed to meaningful discussions on tax reform, and the members I’ve chosen for this working group will conduct an in-depth examination of tax reform and potential impacts on our citizens and our state as a whole,” Treat said. “Our focus is on policy over politics, and I appreciate our members’ willingness to serve as we conduct a thorough, thoughtful study.”
