    In a time of division in our country, President Trump delivered optimism and hope at his first Joint Address to Congress on February 28. The president has proven to the American people that he has already delivered on many of his campaign promises. He promised to shake up Washington, but told us that moving forward he would need Congress to work together to make a difference for our constituents back home. His speech aimed to remind us all that what unites us together is far more powerful than ... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after President Trump rolled out an executive order to review President Obama’s detrimental ‘Waters of the United States’ (WOTUS) regulation: “President Trump’s executive order today to review WOTUS will provide huge relief to a broad spectrum of industries from agriculture to oil and gas to homebuilders who have all been drastically impacted by the regulation,” Mullin said. “WOTUS lets the EPA regulate – and in many cases, ove...

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) introduced H.J.Res. 59, a Congressional Review Act (CRA) joint resolution that blocks the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Accidental Release Prevention Requirements: Risk Management Programs under the Clean Air Act Rule (RMP rule). The Congressional Review Act, passed in 1996, allows Congress to vote to overturn any regulation during a period of 60 days after the regulation was created. Regulations created at the end of the Obama Administration are sub... Read more

  • New DOL Rule Will Hurt, Not Help

    During this district work period, I have had the honor of meeting with people from all walks of life across eastern Oklahoma. At almost every stop I brought up the new Department of Labor Overtime Rule, and a lot of people hadn’t heard of it. When the Obama administration came up with this rule, it gave everyone in the country only six months to comply. Apparently that wasn’t even enough time to educate the public about the rule’s consequences. The new rule requires employers to make a decision ... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 6094, the Regulatory Relief for Small Businesses, Schools, and Nonprofits Act. “The president and his administration committed a reckless and unlawful abuse of power when they instated the Department of Labor’s (DOL) overtime pay rule,” said Mullin. “With no thought to the small businesses, nonprofits, or colleges and universities it will negatively impact, the DOL forced this rule upon business owne...

    The old saying goes: “Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” I think that is the same mindset we need to have when it comes to our welfare system. In 1996, people on both sides of the aisle formed a plan to make sure that those who needed help could get it, and those who were exploiting the system would be forced to support themselves. This week marks the 20th anniversary of President Bill Clinton signing welfare reform into law. This was... Read more

  • Small Business, Big Impact

    As a young man, I had the opportunity to take over my family’s small plumbing business. It wasn’t easy, but with the support of my family and years of hard work, we managed to grow a business that continues to be successful today. None of our success would be possible without the hard work and dedication of the team we built over the years. One of my favorite things about being the representative of Oklahoma’s Second District is the fact that I have the opportunity to help small business owners.... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) voted to oppose the Obama administration’s latest attack on the oil and gas industry – a proposed $10 dollar tax on every barrel of oil. “With oil prices climbing back over $50 a barrel, Oklahoma families are just starting to recover from the plunge in prices,” said Mullin. “But the effects are still being felt. This new tax proposed by the Obama administration will undercut all the efforts made to get Oklahoma’s energy industry back on its feet.” According t... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) on Wednesday voted in favor of the Ozone Standards Implementation Act (H.R. 4775) to make sure the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) does not impose a harmful, unworkable regulation on Oklahoma. In 2008, the EPA revised an air quality regulation and made changes to county-by-county ozone standards. The final regulation wasn’t published until seven years later in March 2015. In October 2015, the EPA again revised the ozone standard. This change requir... Read more
