More changes

Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman, R-Sapulpa, said his caucus also may consider more changes, such as eliminating or reducing tax credits or deductions. Opponents of eliminating certain credits or deductions last year helped lead the defeat of several income tax-cutting bills.

Asked about Bingman's comments, Fallin said, “I think you'll find that tax breaks will be a separate issue from a tax cut.”

Nathan Atkins, Bingman's spokesman, said the pro tem remains committed to a responsible tax cut.

“He also remains committed to continuing a thoughtful discussion about tax reform,” Atkins said.

Fallin said talks are continuing among her, Shannon and Bingman.

“I think we're coming very close to finding common ground,” she said.
