OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Overall collections to the Oklahoma treasury are continuing to slide as a downturn in the energy industry keeps sending ripples through the state’s economy.

Miller reported that overall gross receipts for the month of November totaled $830.8 million, which is almost 2 percent below collections from November 2014.

Sales tax collections also were down, but income tax collections and motor vehicle tax collections both were up.
