We just finished communicating with Rep. Jon Echols & Senator Ralph Shortey on a report filed earlier, today.
We apologize for mischaracterizing their bill as a new tax on transportation services.
The bill they sponsored specifically excludes transportation services from local sales tax.
Rep. Echols reported that a municipality had approached a shuttle company and demanded a local tax for every limousine which drive through their city limits enroute to another city.
Echols & Shortey are fighting to keep such drivers and services from being unfairly taxed twice for their work.
Jon Echols and his staff are working to keep SoonerPolitics better informed when a new tax is being pushed in the state legislature.
