Stitt asks Legislature to extend his power

The Associated Press - February 3, 2020 3:05 pm

Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt is asking the Legislature to extend his power even further and focus on savings in his second State of the State address to lawmakers.

The Republican-controlled House and Senate convened on Monday, and Stitt delivered his speech in the House chamber.

Stitt also released his executive budget for the upcoming year based on about $8.3 billion in available revenue. That’s roughly the same amount as this year’s spending plan.

The Legislature last year gave the governor more control of the state’s five largest agencies.
