Oklahoma Governor Issues Executive Order to Cut Regulations
Gov. Kevin Stitt issued an executive order on February 3 designed to prune state regulations by 25%.
Executive Order 2020-03 has two main requirements.
First, state agencies must review their administrative rules and list any that are expensive, ineffective, redundant, or outdated.
Second, for all new restrictive rules proposed after February 15, agencies have to eliminate at least two existing regulatory restrictions until agencies reduce regulations by 25%.
The order requires the Oklahoma secretary of state to write an annual report for the governor that outlines progress made in eliminating burdensome regulations and streamlining state government.
