Gov. George Nigh on Wednesday signed a new law granting a one-year moratorium on farm loan foreclosures by the Federal Land Bank in Wichita, Kan.

House Bill 1734 quickly passed both houses of the Oklahoma Legislature on Tuesday.

Land values in Oklahoma go down every time there is a foreclosure, Brewster said.

"The state's economy is at risk," Brewster said. "That's what we're trying to protect."
