STILLWATER – Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb, campaigning for governor here Tuesday night, ruled out tax hikes as a way to plug the state budget hole and gave only faint praise to a coalition of state business and community leaders who advanced a sweeping proposal to raise revenue and reform government.

At a meeting of the Payne County Republican Party, Lamb was asked about Step Up Oklahoma, which presented its plan last week in Oklahoma City.

“I’ve read a little bit about Step Up Oklahoma,” Lamb, a Republican, said. “I know there are a lot of good men and women in that organization – that loosely affiliated group – that care a lot about Oklahoma. I’m against tax increases. Did you hear that? I’m against tax increases. I like some of the reforms in Step Up Oklahoma. I particularly like the Office of Budget Accountability and Transparency.”
