OK Legislature Ends 2012 Session (May 25, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Legislature has adjourned the 2012 legislative session with no deal on an income tax cut and no plan to return for a special session.

The House adjourned at the 5 p.m. Friday deadline. The Senate had adjourned at 4:27 p.m.

The Oklahoma Constitution requires lawmakers to adjourn sine (SYE'-nee) die by 5 p.m. on the last Friday in May.

Cutting the state's income tax was a top priority of Gov. Mary Fallin, but a late deal with the Republican-controlled House and Senate fell apart in the final week of session.

Lawmakers did narrowly approve a $6.8 billion general appropriations bill to fund state government for the fiscal year that begins July 1. The budget was a more than 3 percent increase over this year's budget.
