Governor Fallin Signs Executive Order Amending State of Emergency

OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today signed an amendment to the State of Emergency that was declared last month by Lieutenant Governor Todd Lamb. The amended declaration will now include all 77 Oklahoma Counties in response to the continued severe heat and drought conditions.
While some counties are still affected more than others by the heat and drought hitting the state, all counties are currently experiencing drought conditions and forecasts show these conditions will only continue to get worse for all portions of Oklahoma.
This Executive Order is a proactive measure to ensure Oklahoma is eligible for any and all federal assistance that may be available.
