(Sen. Frank) Simpson (District 14) didn't want to classify HB 1775 as a "tax" on aggregates because he couldn't call it what it really is. It is thievery. It was a taking of private property or also known as stealing private property.
I am thankful we have some lawmakers in Oklahoma with some common sense and saw this bill for what it was. It only we could get the same in DC.
Simpson thinks this bill might be fair because it would be voted on by the people. Who wouldn't vote for this tax? It is not money out of their pockets. It is what is "yours is mine" mentality.
