ARDMORE, OK - Lawmakers from across southeastern Oklahoma met with local emergency managers Thursday to discuss making burn ban guidelines more proactive.
Representative Pat Ownbey attended the meeting.
Ownbey said the group wrote a letter to Governor Mary Fallin asking her to place all of southeastern Oklahoma under a burn ban.
He said waiting to meet all four of the guidelines for a burn ban is only reactive.
Carter County has currently met two of the four guidelines.
The decision on whether or not Carter County will be placed under a 30-day burn ban will be discussed at Monday's commissioner's meeting.
