Oklahoma: Special Session Adjourns
April 22, 2018

Lawmakers adjourned a lingering special session, begun in 2017, after approving a historic tax bill that  starts the meter running on efforts to overturn House Bill 1010, a $400 million revenue bill. Legislative leaders announced that an agreement on a $1 per megawatt tax on new investor-owned renewable energy generation is at hand. Under provisions in the agreement, the state would impose the tax rather than further diminish the value of tax credits already issued to the wind-powered energy industry.

The regular session continues, and is expected to adjourn by May 27.
