Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.), member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, released a statement in support of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt’s decision to delay the Obama-era Accidental Release Prevention Requirements: Risk Management Programs under the Clean Air Act Rule (RMP rule). “Administrator Pru...

    Washington is a town full of monuments and memorials dedicated to famous people, events, and presidents. Within just a few miles, there are tributes to President Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., President George Washington, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. They all accomplished heroic deeds and led our country through trying times. A handful of other memorials on the National Mall pay tribute to a group of Americans who led our country in another way. These memorials honor the men an... Read more

    Our nation’s law enforcement officers investigate crime, enforce our laws, and perhaps most importantly, protect our communities. Day after day, law enforcement officers put on their uniforms, leave their families, and go to work prepared to defend those around them from harm. During Police Week, we federally recognize our police officers and honor the sacrifices they make to protect our communities. Beyond keeping us safe and serving as the watchful eye in our neighborhoods, law enforcement is ... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement in recognition of Police Week, observed May 14 through May 20, 2017. “Our law enforcement officials are the thin blue line between chaos and civility in our country,” Mullin said. “We are a nation of laws, and without law enforcement officials to enforce those laws, we are a lawless nation.” “I’m grateful every day for our law enforcement officials who put their lives in harm’s way in order to keep others safe. This week, I enc... Read more

    Within the first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency, we’ve seen him draw the line in the sand. After President Bashar al-Assad delivered one of worst chemical bombing in Syria in history, President Trump made it clear that the United States would not tolerate a war crime like this. When Assad crossed the line by unleashing a chemical attack that took the lives of dozens of his own people, the country’s new commander in chief made good on a promise. For the first time in eight years, our count... Read more

  • Security, safety top priorities in overturning midnight regulation

    The Hill The Obama administration left behind a regulatory environment costing our taxpayers a staggering $1.89 trillion each year and costing businesses forced to comply with these regulations over 580 million hours of paperwork per year. What’s worse is that regulations thought to improve safety and efficiency have in fact done the opposite. Just days before President Trump took office, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rushed through midnight revisions to its risk management plan (RMP... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after the passage of S. 2943, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017. “One of the most vital responsibilities of Congress is to provide for the common defense, by ensuring the safety and security of our nation and its citizens,” Mullin said. “The NDAA FY17 sends the message that our number one priority in government is supporting our troops.” The NDAA supports $619 billion for our national defense.

  • A Day That Still Lives In Infamy

    On December 7, we will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. An attack that lasted just 110 minutes left 2,335 U.S. service members dead and another 1,143 wounded. The next day in an address to a Joint Session of Congress, President Franklin Roosevelt called December 7, 1941: “A date which will live in infamy.” I believe those words still hold true today. After that surprise attack, the United States entered the Second World War, sending 16.1 million Americans ... Read more

    The United States government works on a different calendar than most of the country. We work off of a fiscal year (FY) that starts on October 1st and runs until September 30th. During the current FY, we work to appropriate the funds for the next year. If Congress is unable to pass a budget before the end of the FY, then the federal government shuts down like we saw in 2014. This year, the House worked together to get all 12 of our appropriations bills out of committee and ready for votes on the ... Read more

    In the last two years, ISIS has been tied to almost 100 terror plots against the West, and out of those, America was the number one target. Terrorism is the biggest threat to our national security today, and I believe that it is up to us to stop it. Just last month, a terrorist who pledged allegiance to ISIS carried out the largest attack on American soil since 9/11. This attack had nothing to do with the gun laws of Orlando, Fl. It had everything to do with the radical Islamic ideals of the per... Read more
