Tulsa voters to decide on $640,000,000 tax package

Tomorrow, voters in Tulsa will casting final ballots on a package of temporary taxes for over $620,000,000 in addition to a new permanent sales tax of 0.05% (about $20,000,000 for the time period of the other taxes).

Dubbed Improve Our Tulsa 2, the package is touted as funding improvements for streets, public safety, and infrastructure. A combination of sales and property taxes form the proposal.

Michael Bates of has an in-depth analysis of the proposal, with a legion of accompanying research links for perusal. As always, Bates is the place to go when it comes for thoughts on Tulsa issues.

Bates has also posted a column by Brent Isaacs that goes into further detail on why Tulsans should vote the proposal down. You can access that article at this link.
