House Bill 2696 was defeated in the House Revenue and Tax Subcommittee on February 20. This bill proposed an excise tax upon sales of all "violent" video games.

When asked to withdraw his tax proposal, Representative Fourkiller proposed creating the Oklahoma Task Force on Video Games’ Relationship to Obesity and Aggression. This proposed change failed to pass the subcommittee as well.
