Gov. Stitt offers 1-year extension for Cherokee car tag compact


OKLAHOMA CITY (August 10, 2023) - Governor Kevin Stitt sent a letter to the principal chief of the Cherokee Nation with an offer of a one-year extension on their current car tag compact set to expire on August 16, 2023. The offer contains the same material terms provided in the existing compact.

“With the existing compact about to reach the end of its term, I reached out to Principal Chief Hoskin to extend the existing terms for one year to allow ample time to negotiate another long-term compact,” said Governor Stitt. “Public safety is one of my highest priorities and ensuring compact compliance so that we know who is driving on our roads is an essential piece of that. As always, my door is open, and I look forward to getting this extension in place very soon.”

The proposed contract extension was sent to Principal Chief Hoskin on August 4, 2023, and includes identical material terms to the compact that has been in place for the past ten years. The compact extension includes a clause updating language for the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority and PlatePay to ensure all drivers on toll roads are paying their fair share.
