The wind may still come sweepin' down the plains in Oklahoma, but the government won't necessarily clean out your pockets. As a state that encourages business development, Oklahoma keeps regulation minimal and makes licensing relatively simple. Although in the big city, people are no longer picnicking with their hampers, much of the state remains highly agrarian and produces wheat, cattle and dairy. It also has a large supply of black gold and produces lots of oil and natural gas.
In Oklahoma, smog or emission check facilities are common in states with tight air pollution controls. States like California and New York allow facilities that are not auto repair businesses to perform emission tests and issue official reports required for vehicle licensing and renewal. Emissions testing shops must hold special state licenses and in some cases, licensing agreements to operate their computer systems.
