ATOKA, Okla. (KTEN) — Gov. Kevin Stitt has signed an executive order to provide financial relief to Oklahoma farmers and ranchers impacted by the drought.

The state will distribute money from the emergency drought relief fund.

"There's a board set up to discuss how you're going to be eligible to receive those funds, what activates those funds, and to figure out what forms you are going to have to do," said state Rep. Justin Humphrey (R-District 19).

He noted that shortages of hay and feed are among the biggest issues facing Oklahoma ranchers.
