Sen. McCortney comments on Tribal Compacts

OKLAHOMA CITY- Sen. Greg McCortney, R-Ada, released the following statement after Gov. Kevin Stitt's approval of two tribal compacts with the Chickasaw Nation.

“First and foremost, I want to share my appreciation for Governor Stitt and his team for their efforts to negotiate and enter the tobacco and vehicle compacts with the Chickasaw Nation, one of our state’s largest and most economically diverse tribal nations. These agreements show promise that our state-tribal relations are moving in a positive direction and offers hope that we’ll see more tribes signing compacts soon. Oklahoma’s economy, services, infrastructure, and most importantly, our people, will benefit as we continue to work with our tribal partners and leaders.”
