    Oklahomans deserve every chance to pursue their dreams, whether the goal is to open a restaurant, run a small business, or innovate something new. The federal government should not stand in the way of these goals. Instead, it should create opportunity and support our dreams. I am working to give Oklahomans these opportunities by cutting red tape, and eliminating obstacles caused by an overpowering tax code and burdensome regulations. Small businesses are the backbone of Oklahoma’s economy. Toget... Read more

    The phrase ‘Made in America’ resonates with Americans uniquely and brings a feeling of patriotism unlike any other. Across the country, the label or stamp on a product of ‘Made in America’ is more than just a tagline – it’s a well-known promise of quality, dependable goods made right here at home. In 2012, American manufacturers sold $5.6 trillion in goods and a huge portion of those – almost 80 percent – were made here in the United States. Products made in America undoubtedly benefit our econo... Read more

    Roughly six months into the 115th Congress and more than 160 days into President Trump’s first term in the White House, the Republican-led House has passed more than 260 bills and the President has signed more than 40 bills into law. In true form, the People’s House is listening to the people and we hear you. That’s why we’ve passed reforms that make life simpler, easier, and better for veterans, ranchers, farmers, small business owners, job seekers, job creators, and every other American. We im...

    Tags: Economy and Jobs

    Since its beginning, America has been known as the land of opportunity. Millions of immigrants left their own homes to find something in our country not readily available in their own: an opportunity to succeed. A large part of that success is defined by having a job. In Oklahoma, just like in all other parts of the country, people want a job that gives them purpose, allows them to provide for their family, and creates a chance for a better life. It’s our job in Congress to make sure the federal... Read more

  • The Right CHOICE for Oklahoma’s Main Street

    Tags: Economy and Jobs

    In rural Oklahoma, mom-and-pop shops and family-run businesses are the norm. By and large, Oklahomans stop in to see their friends at their store down the street because many of us are hundreds of miles from the nearest shopping mall, or simply because we trust the people just down the road. We keep our business local and prefer to keep our dollars in our own community, especially when it comes to which banks and credit unions we choose. When people in Okmulgee need a mortgage or a car loan, the... Read more

    Entrepreneurs in Oklahoma have a lot to celebrate this Small Business Week. Each day, the federal government does more and more to get government out of the way so that our small businesses can succeed. This is especially true in Oklahoma where more than 345,000 small businesses employ more than half of the private workforce. Nationally, small businesses represent 99.9 percent of all businesses with employees and account for 2 out of 3 net new jobs. With over 29 million small businesses across o... Read more
