Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) introduced legislation to streamline federal requirements to build meteorological towers used to collect data that helps scientists approve or deny wind energy projects.

Press Release
Congressman Markwayne Mullin today called on President Obama to act quickly to approve the Keystone XL pipeline project. “This important job creating project is already benefiting Oklahoma and once complete will continue to benefit our state as well as help reduce our country’s dependence on sources not friendly to the United States,” Congressman Mullin said. “In light of the draft environmental impact statement on the northern leg of the Keystone XL, there is little doubt that the pipeline should be built.”

Press Release
Today marks the beginning of the across-the-board spending cuts called the sequester. It is unfortunate that in Washington, nobody can agree to make the spending cuts needed to replace the sequester. Oklahomans have seen through the ratcheted-up political rhetoric coming from both the White House and Congress. They are ready for the dysfunction to stop and for this country to get back on stable fiscal footing by making common-sense cuts to federal spending that do not threaten public safety, national defense or the economy.
