A major overhaul of Oklahoma's workers' compensation system and revisiting plans to reduce the state's personal income tax are among the top priorities for legislative leaders when they return to the state Capitol for the 2013 legislative session.

But Gov. Mary Fallin and President Pro Tem Brian Bingman both say details in the state budget, including a possible tax cut, depend largely on whether Congress is able to avert the looming fiscal cliff and the resulting federal spending cuts.

Fallin will lay out her priorities for the 2013 session in her State of the State address when the Legislature convenes during the first week of February. She says tax cuts and creating the "best business climate possible" will continue to be her top priority.
