T.W. Shannon Outlines Priorities in Speech at Capitol

OKLAHOMA CITY Okla_ Oklahoma Republican House Speaker T.W. Shannon laid out his priorities today at the capitol.

The Lawton representative said the creation of a new eight-year plan for repairing and replacing state-owned assets will be among those priorities. Leaders in the new 72-member House Republican Caucus didn't have a lot of specifics, but they said changes to the state's pension and workers' compensation systems, tax cuts and increased funding for education will be among their goals.

The chairman of the House Appropriations Committee says he plans to introduce a bill calling for a ¼ of 1% cut in the state's top income tax rate.

The legislative session begins Monday.
