Okla. Senate Leaders Unveil Legislative Agenda (Feb 07, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Leaders in the Oklahoma Senate say they share Republican Gov. Mary Fallin's goal of reducing the state income tax, but stopped short of endorsing her plan to cut the top rate by nearly 2 percent beginning in January.

A group of about 20 Senate Republicans met Tuesday to unveil its priorities for the 2012 legislative session.

Republican Sen. Rick Brinkley of Owasso has been leading an analysis of the state's tax structure. Brinkley says Senate Republicans will give careful consideration to a task force that recommended a more modest cut in the state income tax that was revenue-neutral.

The Task Force on Comprehensive Tax Reform suggested cutting the state's top income tax rate from 5.25 percent to 4.75 percent over the next two years.
