Update on COVID-19
These are extraordinary times in which we are living.
With that said, I want to offer reassurance and hope. We are a strong district, a strong state and a strong nation. We have endured every past crisis we’ve faced in Oklahoma and in our nation. We will prevail over this as well.
As far as your state government, and the core services it provides, I want to reassure you that government is functioning, and I will continue to work on behalf of the people in our House district. We are just having to do some things differently. Right now, we are restricting Capitol access to elected state officials, essential employees, credentialed members of the press and state employees that are invited for critical meetings. This could change if necessary. We also voted on emergency procedures that will allow us to work remotely if necessary and to vote by proxy through a caucus designee. This will only happen if absolutely necessary to conduct the business of the state. We must pass a state budget and keep state agencies operational so they can continue to provide services for Oklahomans.
