Stitt appoints new members to three boards

The Associated Press - March 19, 2019 11:12 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Less than one week after being given sweeping new power over five of the state’s largest agencies, new Gov. Kevin Stitt is taking advantage by appointing new board members to oversee three of them.

Stitt announced on Monday his appointments to the governing boards for the Oklahoma Health Care Authority, the Office of Juvenile Affairs and the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services.

Those three agencies alone account for about $2.3 billion in annual state appropriations.
