Stitt Executive Order
Governor Stitt refuses to take the Washington orders without a fight. Executive Order 2021-03 serves to highlight Oklahoma’s role in providing global energy in an attempt to show Washington that they will not be missing out on state revenues. The order cites federal overreach against energy producing states like Oklahoma and those in the west. Both the state house and senate issued their support. As Representative Jay Steagall puts it, “The Tenth Amendment limits the scope of federal power and prescribes that the federal government was created by the states specifically to be an agent of the states. It is well within the purview of each individual state to secure it’s citizens’ unalienable rights.”
Oil Supports Non-Profits
Oklahoma is one of the nation’s leading energy producers, and nonprofit organizations are extending their thanks. Many nonprofits are highlighting the fact that they could not exist without the supplementary funding of oil and gas production. Every year, the oil and gas industry gives a third of what our campaign raises,” said United Way of Central Oklahoma President & CEO Debby Hampton. In the last 10 years, Oklahoma oil and gas has matched ⅓ of the United Way’s raised funds, or some $60 million. In 2021 alone, the industry donated $1,378,155 to regional food banks of Oklahoma. Art programs even benefit from oil and gas. Allied Arts, an Oklahoma based organization that supports art programs in communities received $3 million in 2020 alone. The benefits of oil and gas far surpass the funds that are collected as severance tax, and continue to benefit communities within Oklahoma.
