OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Senate will meet Friday to consider special session and regular session measures.
The Senate will meet in special session at 8:30 a.m. Friday to consider HB 1019xx, the marketplace fairness act or so-called “Amazon bill,” as well as HB 1012xx, a bill that repeals the “hotel/motel” tax that was originally included the $530 million revenue package (HB 1010xx) passed by the Legislature last week that completely funds the largest teacher pay raise in state history.
The Amazon bill is estimated to generate approximately $20 million and when added to growth revenue in the state budget more than makes up for the hotel/motel tax.
The Senate also will meet in regular session Friday morning to consider HB 3375, the so-called “ball and dice” bill.
