Some pipeline, securities and telecommunications companies may soon get extended tax incentives.
Lawmakers in the Oklahoma House of Representatives passed a bill Tuesday on a 70-25 vote.
The House and Senate must now work out a compromise because of House changes to the Senate version.
Representatives made changes to the Oklahoma Quality Jobs Program that provides tax incentives to several industries if they operate in the state and meet minimum salary and other requirements.
The incentive is calculated based on the companies' wages.
The plan would also take away the incentives if a company leaves the state within three years.
Some representatives questioned if the incentive is necessary or would help the state.
Republican Rep. Mike Reynolds called it "trash" that would benefit only the state's Commerce Department.
