Oklahoma City (May 26, 2017) – State Chamber of Oklahoma President and CEO, Fred Morgan, released the following statement:

“While we understand the difficulty this session presented, the budget process in the Legislature this year has been extremely frustrating. Like many Oklahomans, the business community has been disappointed by the political gamesmanship and dysfunctional approach to the formulation of the budget. Hospitals are closing, school weeks are being shortened due to lack of funding and economic development opportunities are being missed. Structural deficits were not addressed, so the revenue and spending problems will reoccur next year, if not sooner.

Oklahoma City (May 24, 2017) – State Chamber of Oklahoma President and CEO, Fred Morgan, released the following statement:

“The State Chamber is pleased with the passage of the Oklahoma Energy Jobs Act. This legislation will keep our state growing and allow all oil and natural gas producers to use the most modern technology in their drilling practices. More development means roughly 5,900 new jobs, increased royalty payments and more money going to state and local coffers. This is a good bill and will serve Oklahoma well.”

One in five salary workers are employed, in some way, by the industry. We currently have more than 120 rigs running in Oklahoma and oil and gas are one of the biggest job creators in our state.
