    While many people across the country celebrated the unofficial start of summer last week, Oklahoma braced for severe weather and faced catastrophic flooding. As I traveled around Northeastern Oklahoma to help communities and meet with emergency management teams, I saw areas devastated. Roads we are used to traveling on a daily basis are not accessible and some have even washed away completely. Families had to evacuate their towns and some even lost their cars, homes, and businesses to the flood.... Read more

    The radical Pelosi Democrats in Washington recently unveiled their large-scale plans to drastically transform our society, best known as the Green New Deal. It claims to want to take our country to net-zero emissions in the next ten years. What people don’t realize is that the Green New Deal is the vehicle that will drive our country straight into socialism. The author of the Green New Deal, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, makes several guarantees to the American people including: “A job with a f... Read more

    Oklahomans utilize our state’s vast infrastructure systems every day. Aside from driving on paved roads, Oklahomans often cross over an important economic contributor for the state: the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System (MKARNS). Without this vital waterway, MKARNS would need 398,493 trucks or 99,623 railcars to transport the entire system’s 9,962,334 tons of commerce. While not all Americans take part in the day-to-day logistics of our nation’s water infrastructure, our ports, inl... Read more

    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 However, the entire system is at risk of failing due to crumbling and outdated infrastructure.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

    U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) praised the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration for including drivers of commercial motor vehicles engaged in the transport and offloading of “frac” sand at oil or natural gas well sites in the existing oil field service exemption. The updated guidance has been made available here. “Frac sand haulers face delays beyond their control—just like other oil field operators,” Inhof... Read more

    Each year, Oklahoma’s economy is positively impacted by the production and shipment of heating, cooling, and refrigeration equipment, rubber, pipes, steel and iron tubes, fertilizer, plastics, and so much more that originate inside our state. In 2016, Oklahoma exported $1.4 billion in goods to Canada and $537 million to Mexico, our two largest export markets. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is responsible for nearly 40 percent of Oklahoma’s total exports and over 100,000 Oklahoma... Read more

    Clunk. Clunk. Clunk. You’re driving down Highway 69 on your way to work and the roads are full of potholes the size of our neighboring state of Texas and uneven pavement that makes you feel like you’re on a roller coaster. These roads that thousands of Oklahomans travel daily to get to work are proof of our state’s crumbling infrastructure. In their 2017 infrastructure report card, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave Oklahoma a C- grade overall. Our dams, roads, bridges, and levees all ... Read more
