Many have inquired when they would be able to sign the Voter Referendum Petition to give the people of Oklahoma the opportunity to reject or retain the largest wealth redistribution tax increase passed in Oklahoma history (half a billion dollars) by the State Legislature and Governor. The moment has arrived and below is the press release from Oklahoma Taxpayers Unite!

VETO REFERENDUM PETITION FILING WITH SECRETARY OF STATE OFFICE
The passage of House Bill 1010XX in March was the largest tax hike in our state history. Taxes were raised without any fiscally responsible requests for audits and ultimate reforms. People are rightfully angry with a system that keeps coming back to the people making monetary demands through taxation rather than cleaning up the obvious fraud or mismanagement (or theft) in far too many state agencies.
Each month there is a new scandal revealed with several millions (or hundreds of millions) of dollars missing. Last week, $230 Million missing from Oklahoma Department of Transportation was revealed. The taxpayers are fed up.
Oklahoma Taxpayers Unite! has been in contact with legislative leadership and has requested reforms and supported several well-meaning bills, only to be thrown out and not heard by this legislature. Thankfully the Oklahoma State Constitution allows for the people of Oklahoma to have the ultimate power through their vote at the ballot box through a Veto Referendum. Let those who pay, have a say!
Oklahoma Taxpayers Unite! has responded to the cry of the taxpayer. Oklahomans are concerned and dismayed at the handling of our finances for many years and are filing a veto referendum petition for circulation to allow the citizens of Oklahoma the opportunity to vote on the repeal of HB1010XX. This veto, if successful, will force the legislature to do the work of the needed deep dives, investigations and discovery regarding Oklahoma taxpayers’ money.
Oklahoma Taxpayers Unite! starts collecting the necessary signatures today to have HB1010XX placed on the ballot for a vote of the people.
