Special Session budget bill roll-call

The 2017 Special Session began September 25, after the Oklahoma Supreme Court invalidated a cigarette fee in August. The ruling left a $215 million hole in the state budget. With the exception of a one week delay in which the state capitol building was under repairs, state senators and representatives have been meeting in Oklahoma City four days a week since to rework the budget.

House Bill 1054, which originated in the House, and then was passed in the Senate with significant revision, would have raised $132.9 million in new general revenue the remainder of this budget year and $441.4 million for the full 2019 fiscal year that begins July 1.

The bill would have raised the modified gross production tax for horizontal oil wells from 2 to 4 percent, increased fuel taxes 6 cents per gallon, assessed a $1.50 per pack surtax on cigarettes and raised taxes on other tobacco products and on low-alcohol beer. With $23.3 million from the constitutional reserve fund already appropriated, adoption of HB1054 would have left the Legislature about $50 million short of filling the $215 million hole.

Gov. Mary Fallin, who has been pushing for new revenue since this year’s regular session convened in February, said she was “imploring” the House to muster the 76 votes needed for passage. “Let’s prove we can solve our difficult budget problem and move our state forward,” Fallin said in a written statement.

Despite these efforts, the bill only received 71 of the 76 votes required.
