Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt has issued an executive order to try to bring relief to Oklahoma farmers.

The order creates an Emergency Commission and authorizes it to use relief funds to help farmers who have lost money on crops and livestock because of the drought.

“I will always do everything in my power to support Oklahoma’s great farmers and ranchers who work hard every day to feed our state and our nation,” said Governor Stitt. “Whether it’s inflation or drought conditions, our agriculture producers have been dealing with some tough challenges this year so I am glad that with the help of the legislature we can help provide this relief.”

All 77 counties in Oklahoma are currently in a state of emergency due to drought conditions.
