Save the Illinois River, inc., STIR | Environment | March 29, 2024

Please complete the message from the Conservation Coalition (and STIR) and send ASAP. HB4118 is scheduled to be heard Monday by the Senate Agriculture Committee.
We have a good chance of defeating this bill but not unless everyone makes a statement opposing it.
STIR's position is that HB4118 is a threat to the Illinois River, its tributaries, its aquifers, and to Lake Tenkiller. It is a threat to our mission.
Please share with your networks urging that this message to vote NO on HB4118 is sent.
Thank you

HB4118 is on Monday's agenda for a vote by the Senate Agriculture Committee.

HB4118 places the poultry industry above the rest of Oklahoma: Municipalities, Tourism Industry, Tribal Nations, Other Agriculture, and the Citizens of Oklahoma. We understand the importance of the poultry industry in Oklahoma and simply ask they be responsible and held accountable for the results of their practices just as other industries and citizens.
We are close to getting this defeated…but cannot let up…it is our combined efforts that will make the difference.
We thank the Conservation Coalition of Oklahoma for making this collaborative effort possible.The pre-drafted email accessed by the button below has been created in collaboration with municipalities, Tribal Nations, other conservation groups, and a variety of Oklahoma Citizens.
In conjunction with our opposition, the Oklahoma Inter-Tribal Council released a letter of opposition on March 18, 2024.
