    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

    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) 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

    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...
