Governor: Expect Veto If Budget Deal Doesn't Include New Revenue

Posted: Updated:

Governor Mary Fallin promises to veto any state budget deal that doesn't include new revenue sources to fix the current deficit.

Fallin talked live with 6 In The Morning Thursday morning, saying lawmakers must find additional revenue to fund state services.

Currently, a major obstacle to fixing a $878-million shortfall is a stalemate over where that additional revenue should come from.

One sticking point is a hike of taxes on oil and natural gas production.

The governor says lawmakers are not even close to an agreement and they need to put politics aside and fix it problem now with less than 12 days to go in the current legislative session.
