Oka. Lawmakers To Take Up Bond Measures, Tax Cuts

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma lawmakers will return to the state Capitol to consider dozens of pending bills one day before they are constitutionally required to adjourn.
    
Members of the House and Senate will take up their unfinished business on Thursday. The 2012 Legislature convened its four-month session on Feb. 6 and must adjourn no later than 5 p.m. Friday.
    
Still pending in the Senate is a measure to issue a $42 million bond issue to build a new headquarters for the Office of the State Medical Examiner and equip it. Officials say the existing structure is obsolete and a morgue cooler recently broke down.
    
Pending in the House is a proposal to reduce the state income tax. House leaders have unveiled a plan to cut the rate from 5.25 percent to 5 percent.
