Governor Stitt is on his way to Washington D.C. in hopes of getting federal help as just one of his ways he is hoping to help Oklahomans with their utility bills.

"I want to know we are doing everything we can to help you and your families get through this," said Governor Kevin Stitt.

As Oklahomans were a part of rolling blackouts, the Governor said he knows Oklahomans did everything they could to conserve energy.

State leaders are working to ensure that energy bills are not going to affect Oklahomans finically.

The first goal is to help get financial assistance for upcoming energy bills and get to the bottom of the situation to make sure this never happens again to the state.

With energy bills on the way, Attorney General Mike Hunter is urging utility companies to suspend automatic bill payments.

"We need to make sure we have a strategy in place, so folks don't get a bill that is completely unmanageable," said Attorney General Mike Hunter.
