The version of the new oil tax the House passed last night has been sent on to the Senate. The bill would raise state revenues half a billion dollars more than the governor proposed when she called the special session – that’s about a billion
dollars more than the current tax structure. The bill is drawing praise from the governor, and is causing some rethinking in the Senate.
