Senate passes resolution to put tag issue to a vote

(Oklahoma City-AP) -- The Oklahoma Senate today unanimousl ypassed a resolution allowing voters to decide a bill that would reduce automobile tag fees.

The resolution passed 43-to-0 with little discussion.

Since it is a resolution and not a bill, the measure will not go to Governor Keating for his signature. Instead the Secretary of State will consider it before placing it on a ballot.

Earlier today, the passed on a 94-to-six vote, with Republicans casting the "no" votes. They have argued for a larger tax reduction.

Democrats last night tried to override Keating's veto of the bill and got a 61-37 vote in favor of that. But 68 votes are needed for the override, so the attempt failed.

House Speaker Loyd Benson and Senate President Pro Tempore Stratton Taylor had promised to craft a resolution to send the issue to voters.
