State Rep. Tommy Hardin Files Concurrent Resolution to Halt Reduction of Extension Service Agents

Mon, 15 Apr 2019 11:07:27 CDT

State Rep. Tommy Hardin Files Concurrent Resolution to Halt Reduction of Extension Service Agents State Rep. Tommy Hardin, R-Madill, filed House Concurrent Resolution 1003 to request the Oklahoma State University Board of Regents and the Extension Service halt their current plans to reduce extension agents in Oklahoma counties until certain information is submitted to top state officials.


HCR1003, filed Wednesday, requests that the Board of Regents for Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges cease the reduction of Extension Service agents of the Cooperative Extension Program until the Board and OSU has provided sufficient information to the Governor, House Speaker, Senate President Pro Tempore and the Secretary of Agriculture.


"The Oklahoma Constitution prohibits the Legislature from telling the Board of Regents where to spend the money appropriated each year," Hardin said. "County extension programs are valuable services to their communities and a huge economic boost that is difficult to measure. Extension service is an investment in our children's future and a valuable resource for our farmers and ranchers with a large economic impact on our state."


Sen. Frank Simpson, R-Springer, is carrying HCR1003 in the Senate.


"Cooperative Extension Service agents provide a vital service in forwarding research to support and grow our state's agriculture industry," said Simpson.
