Legislative Updates:

Speaker Pro Tempore Appointment:

Representative Kyle Hilbert has been appointed as Speaker Pro Tempore, a significant development shaping Oklahoma’s legislative agenda. Additionally, nominations for the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) are underway, highlighting the impact of federal appointments on Oklahoma’s energy policies.

Red Cedar Tree Infestation:

Oklahoma is grappling with the pervasive infestation of red cedar trees, posing challenges to agriculture and the environment. Landowners resort to bulldozing to clear properties, impacting windbreaks and exacerbating allergy concerns. However, advancements like no-till farming and increased irrigation are reducing the need for traditional windbreaks.

Environmental Impact:

The environmental consequences of red cedar infestation are profound. Each acre of red cedar trees consumes 55,000 gallons of water annually and presents fire hazards due to their flammability. Join us as we explore the implications of red cedar infestation on Oklahoma’s ecosystem and agriculture.

Community Engagement:

Communities across Oklahoma are actively engaging in environmental stewardship and land management initiatives. From water conservation to sustainable agriculture practices, local efforts are shaping the state’s environmental policies and fostering a resilient future.
