American Legion granted tax-exempt status.

Byline: Journal Record Staff

OKLAHOMA CITY Gov. Kevin Stitt on Monday signed a bill that will exempt the American Legion Department of Oklahoma from sales tax.

House Majority Leader Mike Sanders, R-Kingfisher, and state Sen. Roger Thompson, R-Okemah, are authors of House Bill 1003. The measure previously passed unanimously in the House and Senate.

"The American Legion is our state's largest veterans' organization, serving in Oklahoma for 100 years," Sanders said. "I want to thank them for all that they do on behalf of our veterans and their families as well as our youth. I've been working for many years to ensure the American Legion has the same tax-exempt status as other organizations with similar missions. I want to thank Sen. Thompson for working to help secure passage of this bill and Gov. Stitt for signing this legislation."
