    Tags: Economy and Jobs, Native American Affairs

    Today the House unanimously passed H.R. 2606, the Stigler Act Amendments of 2018. The legislation would allow land held by the Five Tribes—the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Muskogee (Creek), and Seminole Nations—to remain restricted, even if the heir to the land has less than ½ blood quantum. “When the Stigler Act of 1947 was passed over 60 years ago, the federal government mandated a ½ blood quantum requirement for restricted land owned by members of the Five Tribes,” said Mullin. “No other tri...

    This week at the White House, President Trump held the second annual ‘Made in America’ showcase. Representing Oklahoma at the showcase was Round House Jeans, a company who’s been making jeans in Shawnee, Oklahoma for the last 110 years. But that’s just one of many companies that could have been in attendance to tout their Made in the USA label. Oklahoma also has Nonni’s Foods of Tulsa, Griffin Foods of Muskogee, Shawnee Milling Company, Ditch Witch of Perry, Braum’s of Tuttle, Stilwell Foods, an... Read more

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 6147, the Interior, Environment, Financial Services, and General Government Appropriations Act for FY 2019: “Since the day the Obama Administration implemented the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) Rule, I have been fighting to overturn it,” said Mullin. “The WOTUS Rule allowed every creek, ditch, and stream to be treated like a ‘navigable body of water,’ giving the federal government power to unne...

    Throughout the country, our road, waterway, and rail infrastructures are in desperate need of repairs and upgrades. I want to highlight one of the greatest infrastructure projects in need in our state: the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System (MKARNS). MKARNS brings in millions of dollars each day to Oklahoma and Arkansas’s economies. However, the entire system is at risk of failing due to crumbling and outdated infrastructure. One vital part of MKARNS operations is the Tulsa Port of ... Read more

  • The Small Business Boom

    There are more than 29,600,000 small businesses across the United States. To me, that’s 29,600,000 good reasons to ensure small businesses can operate in a business-friendly environment. That starts with getting the federal government out of the way. Fortunately, President Trump understands the impact small businesses have on our economy and is enacting policies and cutting red tape that stagger the growth of our greatest economic force. During Small Business Week, we celebrate small businesses ... Read more

    Since the day President Trump took the oath of office, he has been hard at work making America great again. Others may not agree with how many times he tweets each day or his unique deal making tactics, but the fact of the matter is that President Trump is enacting policies that put our country back on track. As a businessman from New York City, President Trump may speak or act differently than most Oklahomans. I believe that we make decisions based on two things: our life experiences and the wa...
