Rep. Tarr’s July 20th Newsletter: Negotiating a Compromise to End Cash Payments to Oil Companies & Russian Jack Picnic

I’m pleased to write this after having worked hard to negotiate a compromise bill to end oil and gas cash subsidy payments. When asked about these subsidies in a recent budget survey, 93% of respondents in our area said they needed to end. I listened and worked with my colleagues, and as the Chair of the Conference Committee on HB 111, to make that a reality.

Rep. Tuck’s July 20th Newsletter: Agreement Reached to End Cash Subsidies to Oil Companies

This past weekend the House and Senate formed a compromise on HB 111 to eliminate cash credits to oil companies. The House passed the bill by a vote of 33-6 and Senate passed it 18-0. After weeks of negotiating, the bill is estimated to save the state about $200 million per year over the next 10 years. With some limitations, companies can instead claim tax deductions after they start producing oil, which makes a lot more sense than handing money over with no way to tell if it is resulting in increased production.
