Gov. Stitt: State doesn't need more stimulus

Posted at 11:32 PM, Aug 06, 2020

As lawmakers continue to spar over another stimulus package, Governor Kevin Stitt says Oklahomans don't need another stimulus deal.

"I don't think we need another stimulus package, no. So, we've told our federal delegation, we've told the White House that. We want to make sure that this $1.2 billion actually gets on target, and we have not even got our $1.2 billion that we've allocated so far in Oklahoma. We haven't got it out," Gov. Stitt said.

He says the state needs to get the monies they have out before there's another $2 trillion bail out.

President Donald Trump's Friday deadline for a deal is fast approaching.

In a tweet, the president said he's already got his staff working on an executive order if negotiations fail.
