  • OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The chairman of the Senate Finance Committee has stalled a leadership-backed bill to cut the state's income tax and then declined to explain why the bill has been laid over.
     
    The decision Tuesday by Tulsa Republican Sen. Mike Mazzei (MAY'-zee) comes one day after a separate income tax proposal Mazzei sponsored was soundly rejected by a House committee.
     
    When approached by reporters after the meeting, Mazzei declined to respond to questions and said he had a pressing meeting to attend.
     
    The bill must be approved by a Senate committee before Thursday in order to proceed to the full Senate.
     
    The Senate and the House have two separate proposals to cut the state's top income tax rate.
