ISSUES

ECONOMY

Governor Kevin Stitt led Oklahoma to be the first state in the nation to fully reopen its economy after the federal government’s “safer-at-home” policies. As a result, Oklahoma is experiencing the third lowest unemployment rate in the nation and has the highest labor force participation rate in our State’s history. 

Governor Stitt has also fought for policies to diversify our economy beyond oil and gas revenues and drive strong fiscal policies to spur job creation and support our Oklahoma businesses to keep growing right here at home. His successes to date are as follows: 

  • Ranks #1 in lowest cost to do business and #3 in lowest cost of living (source)
  • 3rd lowest unemployment rate in the nation (source)
  • 10th lowest taxes in corporate income, personal income, property (source)
  • 7th in online budget transparency due to Stitt putting Oklahoma’s checkbook online (ranked 46th when Stitt took office) (source)
  • 7th best highway bridge conditions in the nation (11th when Stitt took office) (source)
  • Historic levels of public education investment by the state for three consecutive years, including teacher pay raises (source)
  • Historic investments in the State’s savings account – Stitt inherited a nearly empty Rainy-Day fund, building it back to a historic high of roughly $2 billion. (source)
