Lawmakers expected to wrap up legislative session by Friday

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._ This year’s legislative session wraps up at the end of this week, but the house and senate have a few hectic days ahead.

Both chambers still need to vote on a final budget bill. Late last week, they reached an agreement with the governor on how to best divvy up the state’s nearly $7 million budget.

They will also talk this week about whether or not to fix up the crumbling State Capitol Building. A $120 million bond issue will be discussed.

Other issues that will be addressed are a possible overhaul to the pension system for state workers and adjusting a tax incentive for oil and gas drilling.

Lawmakers have until May 30 to finish their work, but house and senate leaders said last week after striking a budget agreement they intend to adjourn before Memorial Day.
