Oklahoma Legislature forms joint committee on water policy

As triple-digit temperatures and an ongoing drought strain water supplies for many Oklahoma communities, a joint legislative committee was named Wednesday to work on long-range water policy recommendations for the state. “The current drought and heat are stark reminders of why we need a responsible water policy foundation in Oklahoma,” said Rep. Phil Richardson, R-Minco, a co-chairman of the Joint Legislative Water Committee. “More droughts and extreme weather are sure to come, and if we’re not prepared, water supplies will dry up and infrastructure will break down.”
