NFIB/Oklahoma 2014 Legislative Victories

Date: August 22, 2014

  • Minimum wage: NFIB supported legislation which bans Oklahoma cities from setting a minimum wage higher than the federal rate. By preventing inconsistent minimum wage mandates across municipalities, this new law creates greater predictability for small businesses and maintains a cohesive business environment across Oklahoma.

  • Income tax relief: Supported a reduction in the state personal income tax rate that will lower Oklahoma‚Äôs top rate to 5 percent in 2016 . While the federal government raises taxes, this helps Oklahoma small business owners remain competitive in a tough economy..

  • Property rights: Successfully pushed for legislation that prohibits cities from requiring business owners to pay a fee to register vacant commercial property.
