Governor Stitt Applauds State Senate for Sustaining the Veto of SB 26X
Today, Governor Kevin Stitt released the following statement applauding the State Senate for sustaining the governor’s veto of SB 26X:
"I am pleased by the Senate’s vote to sustain my veto of the Tobacco Compact extension and I believe that today’s outcome underscores the state’s commitment to negotiating compacts in good faith, that are beneficial to all parties involved. My original compact offer—to extend the compacts previously negotiated and entered by Oklahoma’s Governor and tribal counterparts—is still on the table for each tribe that has reached out and remains available to those that have not yet. I look forward to continuing to work with them to reach an agreement."
