A proposal by a local state senator to end a grocery tax is receiving some widespread attention across Oklahoma.
A plan to end the state’s grocery tax made the list of 100 ideas made by Oklahomans to improve the state.
Over the course of the past year thousands of ideas were submitted, and Senator Jay Paul Gumm's proposal is number 25 on that list.
Senator Gumm says Oklahoma is one of the few states that taxes groceries. He says food should not be taxed because it is a basic necessity.
Gumm says he also believes abolishing the tax would help the economy of Oklahoma.
