Oklahoma has taken center stage in the fight against environmental, social, and governance policies, and the man leading the charge is state Treasurer Todd Russ.

Russ was in Washington, D.C., this week and visited The Daily Signal to share an update on his efforts to combat the ESG agenda.

Oklahoma enacted the Energy Discrimination Elimination Act in 2022, and tasked Russ with managing a list of financial institutions prohibited from doing business with the state. That list currently includes BlackRock, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, State Street, and Climate First Bank.

Russ found their ESG policies run counter to the financial interests of Oklahoma.

The law is now in jeopardy, however, following a judge’s ruling in May that temporarily blocked its enforcement.

Russ spoke with The Daily Signal about what’s at stake and how individuals can join the fight against ESG. Listen to the interview on today’s podcast.
