A taxing question

Would passage of SQ 766 be a tax cut or a tax hike? Depends on who you ask.


News

C.G. Niebank
Those on both sides of State Question 766, which would limit taxes on intangible property such as software applications, say its fate could have dire consequences statewide.

Romney is the choice for Oklahoma


Commentary

Todd Lamb
Americans have a fundamental choice about our future. Do we continue along the path of increasing government intervention into our businesses and personal liberties, or do we reverse the course? Following are a few examples of places where Mitt Romney will take our nation in a different direction than the current administration. Through this broad range of issues, it is clear that Romney should be the choice for Oklahoma.

Mitt’s no everyday folk


Letters to the Editor

Jim Ammerman
Mitt Romney recently divulged in his tax release that there were deductions he had elected not to take. On face value, one could assume Mitt was just paying his fair share. I do not make that assumption.

The Campaign

Enough laughs to make your chad hang.


Comedy

Rod Lott
In any other year but an election year, I’d like to think The Campaign would have been a bigger hit. It's certainly funny; it's also certainly too close to the truth: American politics is a game of money.

Medicaid expansion is the new SQ 744


Commentary

Jonathan Small
Remember State Question 744? It required the state to raise its annual per pupil expenditures to at least the average rate of surrounding states. The measure did not raise taxes or designate funding. It was estimated that, if passed, SQ 744 would have increased state spending on common education by $830 million.

Viva la comunidad

Five years after a controversial state law sought to reduce illegal immigration, the impact on OKC’s Latino community appears minimal.


News

Peter Wright
The Oklahoma Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act of 2007, better known as House Bill 1804, was tough for its day. It remains the gravitational center of illegal immigration arguments in Oklahoma, even as it has been dissected by lawsuits, eclipsed by bills in other states and rendered less relevant by an increasingly young and legal Latino community.

Rice returns

Former state senator Andrew Rice is back in OKC, this time as head of the Variety Care Foundation.


News

Mark Beutler
Less than a year ago, Oklahoma lost one of its rising young political stars when former state Sen. Andrew Rice announced he was leaving. The twoterm senator had been the Senate’s Democratic leader and in 2008 lost a hard-fought race against U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe.
