Oklahoma treasurer reports slump in November collections

The Associated Press - December 7, 2019 9:00 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Treasurer Randy McDaniel says that overall collections to the state treasury in November were less than the same month last year for the first time in nearly three years. McDaniel says that the slump is due in large part to declines in sales and oilfield tax payments.

It’s the first time since March 2017 that total collections were lower than the same month in the prior year.
