Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Oklahoma has enacted a state law requiring certain facilities to file P2 plans to qualify for certain preferences and creating the DEQ's P2 program. For the most part, Oklahoma's P2 plans are voluntary. However, the state requires animal feeding operations to develop P2 plans for each licensed facility.

Administration and enforcement. DEQ is authorized to collect and distribute information on waste reduction technologies and procedures; conduct conferences and workshops; and provide funds to business, academic institutions, private organizations, and government entities to demonstrate pilot projects using innovative hazardous waste reduction technologies and procedures. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture is responsible for the administration and enforcement of licensed animal feeding operations in Oklahoma.
