Survey shows Democrats united, GOP split on TABOR

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A survey by The Associated Press shows most members of the Oklahoma Legislature oppose a planned ballot measure that would limit the growth of government spending.

Of the 148 lawmakers surveyed, 86 were against the so-called Taxpayer Bill of Rights, 17 were in favor of it and 45 were undecided. There is one vacancy in the Senate.

State Question 726 would amend the state constitution to require that government spending increases be tied to a percentage based on inflation and population growth.

The secretary of state's office has counted nearly 300-thousand signatures in favor of putting the measure on the ballot. That's about 80-thousand more than needed to qualify the proposal for a statewide vote.

However, a group of state business executives has issued a legal challenge to the question that is pending before the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
