OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Governor Brad Henry says he'll propose more tax breaks for retirees during the upcoming legislative session and will give high priority to road and bridge funding.

Henry outlined some of his goals this week in an interview with the Associated Press. Entering the final year of a four-year term next month, Henry says he's proud of his accomplishments in such areas as education, health care and taxes.

But he says he still wants to eliminate income taxes on retirees over 65.

If re-elected, Henry would become only the third Oklahoma governor to win back-to-back terms in office.
