Governor Stitt Issues Executive Order To Ensure Access To Propane During Winter Weather
Governor Kevin Stitt today signed Executive Order 2021-04, ensuring access to propane during the current stretch of winter weather.
The order suspends certain regulations for truck drivers who are transporting propane for the next 30 days to protect Oklahomans’ ability to stay warm during an extended period of extremely cold temperatures.
“I will continue to make sure red tape does not keep Oklahomans from the resources they need,” said Gov. Stitt. “I also want to remind Oklahomans to use caution when using alternate heating sources to avoid the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning or fires.”
State Rep. Mike Dobrinski, R-Okeene, praised the governor’s quick action.
“So many Oklahomans rely on propane as a fuel source to keep their homes and businesses running, which is critical during freezing winter weather,” said Rep. Dobrinski. “I appreciate the governor’s attention to this important matter that benefits so many of our state residents.”
