Press release

 

Senate Democratic Leader John Sparks on Thursday said committee assignments for members of his caucus had been finalized. Each member will serve on multiple committees as well as serving on the Senate Appropriations Committee during the 2018 legislative session.

 

“Our members come from a variety of backgrounds—education, business, agriculture, first responders, military, mental health and the law—and that real world experience serves the citizens of this state well as our members work to find solutions to the problems facing Oklahoma. This caucus is an important and necessary check and balance within the legislative process,” said Sparks, D-Norman. “All the more, the addition of Senator Michael Brooks and Senator-elect Allison Ikley-Freeman, will bring fresh ideas to this year’s legislative cycle as well as enhance the talent and expertise of our caucus and entire Senate Chamber.”
