Oklahoma Senate Votes 45 to 0 to Advance SB422 to the House

Thu, 20 May 2021 05:24:37 EDT

Oklahoma Senate Votes 45 to 0 to Advance SB422 to the House Senate Bill 422 passed the Senate unanimously on Wednesday by a 45 to 0 vote and is expected to be heard in the Oklahoma House as early as today. Senate Bill 422 will ensure farmers and ranchers have access to the critical ag sales tax exemption permit by providing multiple options to prove eligibility.

After the vote, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with Michael Kelsey about the continued efforts of the coalition of Ag Groups in Oklahoma that have been pushing for passage of SB422 "I really want to emphasize that this is a broad based coalition- Farm Bureau, AFR, all the crop groups, Cotton, wheat, all the livestock groups- basically all of the barnyard- we have been lockstep on this." Kelsey adds that this measure will allow farmers and ranchers multiple ways to prove their right to qualify for the State Ag Sales Tax Exemption card.

Kelsey, as well as Oklahoma Farm Bureau's Senior Director for Public Policy Steve Thompson, say the coalition is taking nothing for granted as they urge the House to vote on this measure this week, as time is quickly running out in the 2021 Legislative Session.

Kelsey also told Hays that this bill will take effect immediately if passed by the House and signed by the Governor- that wll help producers who may have trouble providing the documentation demanded by the Oklahoma Tax Commission as they face renewal of their Sales Tax Exemption Card July first.
