OKLAHOMA CITY — Impressed by the impact of President Donald Trump’s executive order to reduce federal regulations, Gov. Kevin Stitt plans to implement a similar policy in Oklahoma.
Stitt plans to sign an executive order aimed at reducing the number of regulations Oklahoma has on the books.
“My goal is to have a 25% reduction in regulations by the end of my term,” Stitt said.
When he announced the news at a Petroleum Alliance of Oklahoma luncheon Wednesday, Stitt said he hopes the action will help cut unnecessary red tape that can hinder business growth in Oklahoma. Stitt said he plans to talk with Oklahoma business and industry leaders about which regulations to target to make it easier for Oklahoma businesses to open and operate.
