In 2022, Oklahoma passed an anti-ESG law banning state agencies from doing business with companies whose policies the state deems to be discriminatory against fossil fuels. In 2023, the Oklahoma House also passed HB 2547, which would expand this law to ban proxy voting by entities found to be discriminatory in this way; and as in Texas, the anti-ESG movement in Oklahoma may soon target insurance companies.

According to a November 2022 report by Global Energy Monitor, anti-ESG laws are creating a potential conflict of interest for lobbyists who represent both fossil fuel and insurance interests, pitting these sectors against each other.

In 2022, fossil fuel lobbyists in Oklahoma also represented 14 insurance companies and associations, including Aetna, AFLAC, Farmers, and Liberty Mutual.
