Gumm Says Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday “A Victory for Oklahoma Families”

Following is a statement by Senator Jay Paul Gumm, D-Durant, the Democratic author of the “Back-to-School” sales tax holiday, about the proposal being part of the general budget agreement announced by legislative leaders:

“Oklahoma families are a big winner in the budget agreement announced today. The ‘Back-to-School’ sales tax holiday is a tax cut that will make a real difference in people’s lives and help keep Oklahoma’s economy strong.

“We talk a lot about ‘family values’ at the Capitol, but this is a tax cut that truly values families.”
