Issues

SCRF focuses on six critical public policy categories that are the building blocks of a state’s economic competitiveness. We are interested in creating the best possible environment for Oklahoma and Oklahomans to grow and prosper.

If we get policy in these categories right, Oklahoma will out-compete not just our peers, but the entire nation.

TAX COMPETITIVENESS
 

State tax policy plays a critical role in driving a state's economic competitiveness, growth, and overall business climate. By lowering tax burdens and simplifying compliance, states create a more attractive environment for businesses to operate in, which in turn leads to increased investment, job creation, and economic growth.
