    The opioid crisis is widespread in Oklahoma. In order to reduce the number of overdose deaths in our state, we have to work together to turn the tide. As part of my ongoing effort to combat the opioid crisis in our community, I want to make you aware of one important opportunity where you can help. Saturday, October 28, 2017, is the Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

  • A Breath of Fresh Air for Oklahoma’s Economy

    Over the last 10 months of the Trump Administration, we’ve seen more positive changes to our country’s economy than Congress accomplished in eight years of legislation under the Obama Administration. We have made great progress rolling back harmful, job-killing regulations that hinder our economic growth. One of those harmful regulations is the EPA’s so-called Clean Power Plan which would negatively impact Oklahoma’s economy, energy grid, and workforce. During the Obama Administration, there was...

  • Protecting Life at Every Stage

    Children are one of God’s greatest gifts. They are the future of our communities. The next generation will carry on our family farms, take over our small businesses, or take care of us when we get old. When it comes to protecting the lives of children, we have a moral obligation to protect those who cannot protect themselves. I will always believe that every life is sacred. No child should ever be aborted because that life is unique and created in the very Image of God. I am reminded of this eve... Read more

  • I Stand for Patriotism

    This past week in the NFL, various players, coaches, and owners made a statement during the national anthem. Some teams knelt on the field together. Some stood and linked arms in solidarity. Others decided to skip out on the national anthem entirely, opting to stay in the locker room while the Star-Spangled Banner played throughout a stadium of thousands who came to watch a football game. We, as Americans, have rights that are unimaginable to those who live in fear of their government. All Ameri... Read more

  • The Threats of North Korea

    The brutal regime of North Korea is as evident to Americans as it is to people all around the globe. Kim Jong Un, the current dictator of North Korea, has carried on with the inhumane regime, just as all of his family members in power before him. North Korea has for decades been known as an unstable nation with an unstable dictator, unwilling to partake in diplomatic talks with other world powers. North Korea’s threats over the past few months have escalated tensions around the globe. In July, t... Read more

    Alongside millions of other Americans, I am reminded each year on September 11th of the tragic events that will forever be remembered in our country’s history and the nearly 3,000 innocent lives we lost that day. My thoughts and prayers will always be with those who were affected by these harrowing events. In the days following, we saw the resilience of our country. We lost moms, dads, uncles, aunts, grandmothers, grandfathers, cousins, mentors, neighbors, and friends. We lost seven Oklahomans. ... Read more

    Serving in our nation’s military is a commitment to represent the United States in times of both war and peace. It is a worthy and honorable sacrifice, not one to be taken lightly. The men and women who serve in our military are loyal to our flag and protect the freedoms granted to all of us. No matter the branch, rank, or role, all of our men and women in uniform play an important part in maintaining our nation’s security and defending our way of life. My office offers the opportunity for high ... Read more

  • Extending the Oklahoma Standard Across State Lines

    In the wake of one of the most destructive storms to ever hit the United States, Oklahoma’s neighbor to the south is facing tragic flooding, property damage, and trying times. Although facing a catastrophe of a different kind, the Oklahoma Standard is the promise we made years ago to take care of each other in times of tragedy. In the face of Hurricane Harvey, Texas needs to see that the Oklahoma Standard transcends state lines. While persistent storms and record breaking rainfall levels continu... Read more

  • When Does Political Correctness Go Too Far?

    Tags: Native American Affairs

    The conversation happening in our nation in light of recent events is more about political correctness than the issue at hand. Neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and terrorists are bad people. The ideals of these groups are in opposition to everything our nation stands for and everything that holds true to our founding principles. Their hatred of people dissimilar to them is un-American and it should not be tolerated under any circumstances. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey and House Minority Leade... Read more

    It’s no secret that the opioid epidemic is spreading at an alarming rate throughout Oklahoma. Our friends, our family members, and our neighbors – we all know someone affected by the opioid epidemic. Today, more than 2.4 million Americans struggle with addiction to opioids – a fifty percent increase over the last 10 years. With overdose as the leading cause of accidental deaths in our country, it is clear that something must be done to change the direction of this tragic epidemic. Last week, the... Read more
