USA: Okla. Officials Propose Alcohol Tax Hike

Freitag 22. Oktober 2010 von htm

Three Oklahoma officials urged state lawmakers to raise the alcohol tax to help address a 2012 fiscal year budget deficit that could be as large as $800 million, the Associated Press reported Oct. 14.
Health Commissioner Terry Cline and Mental Health Commissioner Terri White were joined by Department of Human Services director Howard Hendrick in advocating for the alcohol tax increase.
Cline said that his agency cut employees and services to meet a 15 percent cut for the past two years. „One or two years of cuts to that infrastructure could result in decades of loss in terms of well-being for constituents in our system,“ he said. (Source: Join Together, 10/18/10)
