Governor Signs Agency Accountability Bills

Calling it a historic day for the state of Oklahoma, Governor Kevin Stitt on Wednesday signed the bills that give the executive branch the authority to hire and fire the directors of the state's five largest agencies. "With this legislation we are ensuring Oklahoma's government is truly accountable to the people of Oklahoma," Stitt said.

The agencies include the Department of Corrections, Juvenile Affairs, Mental Health, Transportation and the Oklahoma Health Care Authority. The bills go into effect immediately.
