ABSTRACT
The article reports on the Taxpayers' Bill of Rights amendment proposed by Oklahoma Republicans. The amendment limits state spending while providing refunds or tax relief in good economic times. Its main provision would allow state government spending to grow only at a pace determined by the rate of inflation added to the population growth rate. The amendment would create a well-funded stabilization fund to finance the state government during economic downturns. The amendment would also contain a provision to allow taxes and expenditures to be raised above the mandated level by popular vote.
