Treat: Look at it as $418 million increase in Oklahomans pocket instead of $418 million revenue loss

According to Senate Pro Tem Greg Treat, passing the House Bill 1955 could save Oklahoma residents up to $ 400 per year. Reported by Blazemedia, it’s a law that will eliminate Oklahoma’s state grocery tax. He said that the relief would come late August and it’s a more substantial relief than any other proposal in this body.

Treat asks to look at the annual impact of the bill not as a $418 million revenue loss but as a $418 million increase in the pockets of Oklahoma’s residents. An additional money for them to buy groceries for their families.
