Highlights This Week:

 

 

Tuition Bills Pass Senate Appropriations Committee:  On Wednesday, the full Senate Appropriations Committee approved two tuition bills:

·         SB 580 [text:  http://www.lsb.state.ok.us/2001-02SB/SB580_int.rtf ] by Sen. Jim Dunlap (R – Bartlesville) would provide the Oklahoma State Regents authority to set tuition and fee limits. 

The bill passed, but received 8 “no” votes.  Those Senators voting against the bill included:

Sen. Robert Kerr, D - Altus

Sen. Sam Helton, D - Lawton

Sen. Bruce Price, D - Hinton

Sen. Dick Wilkerson, D - Atwood

Sen. Herb Rozell, D - Tahlequah

Sen. Jeff Rabon, D - Hugo

Sen. Johnnie Crutchfield, D - Ardmore

Sen. Rick Littlefield, D – Grove

[Note:  Sen. Keith Leftwich (D – OKC) debated against the bill but was not officially recorded as a “no” vote.  His vote may have been overlooked by the committee clerk.]

 

·         SB 596 [text:  http://www.lsb.state.ok.us/2001-02SB/SB596_int.rtf ] by Sen. Cal Hobson (D – Lexington) is a “shell” bill that could be used for increasing current statutory tuition limits.  The bill passed without opposition.

 

Other bills approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee included:

 

 

Lottery Scholarship Bill Fails:  Also at Wednesday’s meeting, the Senate Appropriations Committee defeated SB 809 by Sen. Brad Henry (D – Shawnee) [text:  http://www.lsb.state.ok.us/2001-02SB/SB809_int.rtf ].  The bill would have created the Helping Oklahoma People Excel (HOPE) Scholarship program to provide tuition scholarships to all residents graduating high school with a B grade average and a family income under $75,000.  The bill failed by a narrow margin on a 15-15 tie vote.  The program was intended to have been funded by state lottery proceeds.  The resolution that would have authorized a state vote on the lottery proposal, SJR 24 [text: http://www.lsb.state.ok.us/2001-02SB/SJR24_int.rtf ] was defeated in the same committee meeting by a 14-16 vote.

 

 

Final Appropriations Levels Certified:    On Tuesday, the State Board of Equalization set the final amount of funds available to the Legislature for appropriation this session.  Tuesday’s certified amount was $315.6 million above the level appropriated last year, not including funds available in the state’s Rainy Day Fund.  The Rainy Day Fund has $78.8 which may be appropriated by the Legislature under certain conditions.  The $315.6 million was an increase of $17.9 million from the Board’s initial estimate on December 29, due almost entirely to increased projections of natural gas tax receipts.  Following are several items related to the amount of appropriated funds available.

 

 

House and Senate Advance Supplemental Appropriations:  This week both the House and Senate advanced supplemental appropriation bills that would provide funding to state agencies to address critical budget issues in the current fiscal year.

 

 

Tuition Tax Credit:  This week the House Revenue and Taxation Committee approved HB 1729 by Rep. Kenneth Corn (D – Howe) [text:  http://www.lsb.state.ok.us/2001-02HB/HB1729_int.rtf ].  The bill would allow individual Oklahoma taxpayers to claim a credit of up to $500 on their state income taxes for any tuition paid to a public or private college in Oklahoma.  The revenue loss to the state is estimated at up to $48 million.  Rep. Corn indicated that a final version of the bill would likely reduce this cost estimate significantly.
