60th Annual Board Business Meeting Summary Available Now

The summary from our 60th Annual Board Business Meeting is now available for those who may have missed our virtual event. The introduction to the summary is excerpted below:

The Honorable Kevin Stitt, Governor of Oklahoma and the Southern States Energy Board’s (SSEB) Chairman, called the Board’s annual business meeting to order at 2:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, September 29, 2020.

Governor Stitt welcomed participants to SSEB’s 60th Annual Board Business Meeting.

He commended the Board’s staff for continuing its progress on current projects and programs despite the hurdles created by the coronavirus pandemic. He further stated, “Energy is our nation’s fuel that powers all we do as a society: our quality of life, public health, the environment, and economic development depend on affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy resources.

Governor Stitt addressed the stifling of businesses involved in or benefitting from fossil fuels and stated that higher energy prices and fewer choices will impact our most distressed communities, which is why SSEB is an “all-of-the-above” organization. He stated that, like SSEB, Oklahoma encourages and supports the responsible production of all energy sources as well as the efficient and safe transportation of these fuels to markets. The governor welcomed new members to the board, and said he looks forward to meeting in person next year. Governor Stitt then handed the meeting over to Rep. Rocky Miller, of Missouri, for the Nominating Committee report.
