Governor Kevin Stitt on Increasing Government Efficiencies
During the past several weeks, Governor Kevin Stitt has delivered significant presentations to the Oklahoma Cattlemen's Assoc., AFR/OFU, and, most recently, to Oklahoma Farm Bureau members.

His message has been consistent: Make Oklahoma a top 10 state by cutting regulatory red tape and increasing government efficiencies.

Stitt focused on the four significant areas of job growth and the economy, healthcare, education, and better roads and bridges.

He said it doesn't matter where you live; these four core areas are essential.

To meet his goals, it will take money. He told the farm group Oklahoma currently has a $1 billion savings account.

"I never want to have to cut core services again," said Gov. Stitt. "So, when the time comes, we can inject our savings without cutting core services."

He encouraged farmers to let him know when they see any regulation that doesn't make sense.

They can go to https://breakthetape.ok.gov/ and register their concerns.

"I want to make sure the government doesn't get involved in their business," said Stitt.

Sam Knipp, Farm editor for the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network, grabbed a few quick comments from Governor Stitt following his Farm Bureau address.
