Oklahoma state Rep. Charles Ortega, R-Altus, speaks during a House Appropriations and Budget Committee meeting in Oklahoma City, Wednesday, April 10, 2013. Three separate tax breaks under consideration in the House Appropriations and Budget Committee, include one for the purchase of helicopters that narrowly failed in the same committee just last week. Ortega has said the tax credit is designed to show state support for a helicopter training facility opening in southwest Oklahoma, even though he acknowledged the facility already is set for construction without the credit.
