Executive Order 2015-42  
I, Mary Fallin, Governor of the State of Oklahoma, pursuant to Section 10 of Article 6 of the Oklahoma Constitution, hereby grant a stay of the execution of Richard Eugene Glossip of thirty-seven days from the current scheduled date of execution, September 30, 2015. This stay is ordered due to the Department of Corrections having received potassium acetate as drug number three for the three-drug protocol. This stay will give the Department of Corrections and its attorneys the opportunity to determine whether potassium acetate is compliant with the execution protocol and/or to obtain potassium chloride. The execution for Richard Eugene Glossip is therefore scheduled for Friday, November 6, 2015.
This Executive Order shall be forwarded to the Director of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections and the Oklahoma Attorney General who shall cause the provisions of this Order to be implemented by all appropriate agencies of state government.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Oklahoma to be affixed at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, this 30th day of September, 2015.
BY THE GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA
Mary Fallin
