Okla. GOP Leaders Reveal Few Details of Agenda (Jan 17, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Republican leaders in the Oklahoma House say they plan to support an effort to reduce the state's income tax, but offered few specifics on how such a tax cut might be enacted.

Flanked by more than a dozen GOP leaders, House Speaker Kris Steele on Tuesday outlined some of the over-arching principles of the Republican caucus, but said specific details would be released later.

The 2012 legislative session that begins Feb. 6 will be the last for Steele, R-Shawnee, who is being forced out because of term limits.

House Appropriations and Budget Chairman Earl Sears says there has been little support among the caucus for a bond issue to help finance projects like a Native American museum in Oklahoma City or a backlog of endowed chairs at state universities.
