Morning Fuel with Attorney General Mike Hunter
Ramifications from the U.S. Supreme Court’s McGirt v. Oklahoma decision continue to threaten investment in Oklahoma, this time in the form of a tribal severance tax in Seminole County.
In December, the Seminole Nation sent letters to oil and natural gas producers with wells in Seminole County informing those operators of the tribe’s 8% severance fee. The letters were identical to ones sent in 2018. The fee was instituted in 2014.
Attorney General Mike Hunter has intervened on the industry’s behalf, sending a letter to the tribe asking it to cease, retract, clarify and legally justify its request of producers.
In this Morning Fuel webinar, hear an update from the Attorney General about the state’s response to the Seminole Nation and the McGirt v. Oklahoma decision.
