SB 1574 Passes the House - Returns to Senate for Vote
SB 1574 will DOUBLE the Oversize/Overweight Permit Fees
The Oklahoma Trucking Association has been hard at work trying to prevent this bill from passing, but it has unfortunately passed the House and we are doubtful that we will see anything different from the Senate.
The vote was 87 yea, 13 nay before the Republicans went into caucus. They held up the house for an hour and fifteen minutes before returning and changing their votes so that SB1574 passed 52-48.
The bill goes to the Senate this afternoon to be voted on. The OTA encourages all of our members to contact their State Senators to vote against this measure.
