Oklahoma Grain and Feed and Oklahoma AgriBusiness Retailers Endorse Step Up Oklahoma Proposal

Sat, 27 Jan 2018 15:24:53 CST

Oklahoma Grain and Feed and Oklahoma AgriBusiness Retailers Endorse Step Up Oklahoma Proposal The Oklahoma Grain and Feed Association and the Oklahoma Agribusiness Retailers Association Have Endorsed the “StepUp Ok” Reform and Revenue Measure Concept. The nonpartisan group of state business, civic and community leaders developed this plan to drive efficiencies and eliminate abuse and waste in state government, and to raise revenue for a $5,000 teacher pay raise and to fully fund core services.


The broad based revenue plan, which is a short-term concept, would affect taxes on tobacco, gross production tax, motor fuels (6 cents/gallon), wind power generation, refundable income tax credits, gaming activities and modernizing the state’s income tax code.


The reform measures are more of a long-term recommendation, many of which would take a vote of the people. The package of reforms includes a $5,000 teacher pay raise, revise the budget process, modify term limits, lowering the super majority (3/4) to raise revenue, establish a budget stabilization fund, give the Governor more direct appointment power of the largest state agencies, make the Governor and Lt. Governor run on the same ticket, create an independent budget office, and modernize county government.
