Today, she signed into law a bill to cut Oklahoma's top income tax rate to 5 percent in 2015.</p><p>The bill reduces the state's top income rate that most Oklahomans pay from 5.25 percent to 5 percent beginning Jan. 1, 2015, with a second cut to 4.85 percent set for 2016 if state revenues continue to rise. The second tax cut is contingent on total revenue growth for Fiscal Year 2016 being equal to or greater than the fiscal impact of a .15 percent tax cut.</p> Mon, 13 May 2013 22:46:16 +0000 Collin Tyler & Associated Press 5812 at http://kgou.org Coburn Named to Time 100 List http://kgou.org/post/coburn-named-time-100-list <p></p><p></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">TIME Magazine released its annual&nbsp;</span><a href="http://time100.time.com/2013/04/18/time-100/slide/all/" style="line-height: 1.5;" target="_blank">TIME 100</a><span style="line-height: 1.5;">&nbsp;list Thursday.
