Attorney General Pruitt’s Statement on Unanimous Supreme Court Decision in Favor of Oklahoma in Tarrant Water Case

“This is a major victory for Oklahoma with all nine justices agreeing with our argument that Texas does not have the right to come into Oklahoma and take our water,” Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt said. “We successfully defended Oklahoma’s right to protect its natural resources at the district court, circuit court of appeals, and now the Supreme Court, which confirmed Oklahoma’s sovereignty over its water resources. This unanimous decision will affect all western states governed by multistate water compacts, and will protect Oklahoma’s ability to control this vital resource for generations to come.”
