Governor Stitt Releases Statement Following the U.S. Supreme Court's Latest Action in Hooper v. Tulsa

Friday, August 04, 2023

Governor Kevin Stitt released the following statement Friday following the U.S. Supreme Court's latest action in Hooper v. Tulsa.

“The Supreme Court, through Justice Kavanaugh’s statement, made clear today that the City of Tulsa and municipalities throughout the eastern half of Oklahoma can and must still apply their laws to everyone, Indians and non-Indians alike. The 10th Circuit’s decision isn’t final and doesn't change how we operate here in Oklahoma. Any statement to the contrary should be seen for what it is— a call to chaos. This is a victory for Oklahoma and the rule of law. I will not let eastern Oklahoma become a reservation.”

Justice Kavanaugh's statement can be found here.
