Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt is taking steps to reduce the requirements for businesses to open in the state.

Stitt plans to sign an executive order aimed at slashing the number of regulations in Oklahoma by 25% by the end of his term in 2023.

As of now, he didn't provide details on which regulations he would be targeting, but said he will talk with state business and industry leaders about deregulation that will make it easier for Oklahoma businesses to open and operate.
