Oklahoma Budget Bill Fails in the House


    Another day passed without an agreement in Oklahoma City Wednesday, as once again a plan to plug a hole in the state budget failed to get the votes needed for passage.
      A proposal to hike taxes on tobacco, alcohol, fuel and energy production fell five votes short in the House amid bipartisan opposition. The full House voted 71-27 on Wednesday. 
    Among other things, the bill would have generated about $450 million annually to help pay for a pay raise for teachers and state workers.
