Press release

OKLAHOMA CITY – President Pro Tempore-designate Greg Treat on Friday named the chairs and vice chairs of the Senate standing committees for the 57th Legislature.

“Senate Republicans are optimistic for the future and potential of Oklahoma. We are excited about working on common sense, practical conservative solutions that will usher in transformative change that will have a long-term, positive impact on our state,” said Treat, R-Oklahoma City. “I have confidence in the women and men I have named committee chairs and vice chairs and know they will do great work for the Senate, for their constituents, and for the entire state of Oklahoma.”

Pro Tem-designate Treat in May named Senator Roger Thompson chair of the Appropriations Committee. In August, Treat named Senator Dave Rader vice chair of the Appropriations Committee and named the chairs of the appropriations subcommittees so that work on the Fiscal Year ‘20 budget would commence in earnest.
