Take a Look at House Bill 2132-Is It SQ777 Again?
HB 2132 looks a lot like State Question 777 which was defeated soundly by Oklahoma voters in November. STIR opposed SQ 777 because it would have interfered with our mission of protecting Oklahoma Scenic Rivers. Take a close look at HB2132 and tell your Oklahoma State Senator what you think about it...(posted 3/27/17)
    Oklahoma House Bill 2132 has passed the House and is going to the State Senate.  Some believe it looks a lot like the defeated State Question 777, so-called right to farm.  It would create "prosperity districts" which would be exempt from regulations protecting water, lands and air according to opponents who include Rep. Meloyde Blancett, D-Tulsa.

    "It's not been properly vetted," she said. "My concern is we're opening the floodgates without the appropriate due diligence of any kind."

    The bill by Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka was presented by Rep. Lewis Moore, R-Arcadia.

     Moore said the bill would start a "grassfire of prosperity" in the state.

    "If we create these new prosperity districts, what is going to stop foreign corporations from initializing one in the state for the benefit of that foreign entity that could have grave consequences for our state?" asked Rep. Jason Dunnington, D-Oklahoma City.

Sample letter to your State Senator

Dear Senator___________,
Prosperity Districts established in HB2132 would appear to allow evasion of state regulations. This could lead to abuse of our water, land and air.
Please vote NO on HB2132 and any similar bill in the Oklahoma Senate.
Sincerely,
(your name and hometown)
