Senate Pro Tem Schulz comments on new vehicle sales tax being upheld


Senate Pro Tem Comments on Win in Vehicle Sales Tax Lawsuit

Senate President Pro Tem Mike Schulz, R-Altus, released the following statement after the Oklahoma Supreme Court upheld as constitutional House Bill 2433, a bill modifying Oklahoma's vehicle sales tax:

“As the Senate has maintained, this measure is constitutional and it’s gratifying to know that the Oklahoma Supreme Court agrees. With the decision finalized, we now know the full extent of the revenue picture that needs to be addressed during a potential special session. The Senate will continue to work closely with the Governor and the House to finalize a plan to make up the $215 million in revenue lost in an earlier court decision.”
