Tuesday, October 04, 2022

Governor Kevin Stitt signed HB 1006 today to help Oklahoma farmers and ranchers overcome challenges created by this year’s extreme drought conditions. Specifically, the bill appropriates $20 million to the Emergency Drought Relief Fund. HB 1006 went into effect immediately upon the governor’s signature.

“This year’s extreme drought conditions have created unprecedented challenges for our agricultural producers and as governor I will always do everything I can to support Oklahoma’s great farmers and ranchers,” said Governor Stitt. “I am proud to have partnered up with the Legislature to deliver this much-needed relief.”

Agriculture producers across the state are being impacted by the severe drought that has persisted throughout the spring and summer. These funds will allow them to implement conservation practices and provide essential water and forage to livestock to withstand this drought and be prepared in the future.
