GRIP - Grass Roots Involvement Program

Action Alert

To:           OML Members
From:      OML Legislative Department
Date:       February 6, 2017
Subject: Grocery Sales Tax
In today's State of the State Address, Governor Mary Fallin announced a proposal to eliminate the sales tax on groceries. As you know, this is detrimental to cities and towns as groceries are a large generator of municipal sales tax. While she states in the address that this will only eliminate the state sales tax portion, cities and towns can only tax what the state taxes.  Please contact your House and Senate members and share with them the impact this will have on your municipality.

Send copies of any correspondence you have with your legislators to  or fax to 405-528-7560, attn: Missy for our records. If you need additional information, please call Missy at 405-209-4328 (cell) or at the OML offices at 405-528-7515.
