Senate Leaders Name GCCA Members

Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Morgan and Co-President Pro Tempore Glenn Coffee announced Wednesday 46 of the Senate’s 48 members have been assigned to the General Conference Committee on Appropriations.

The conference committee, which will consider legislation dealing with budgetary matters, will include every senator other than the two leaders.

“We have found in recent years that including nearly all of the members in the appropriations process allows our budget to truly reflect the values of the Oklahomans we represent,” said Morgan “With the naming of GCCA, the Senate stands ready to begin work in earnest to complete the state budget in a timely and orderly fashion.”

Coffee stated, “The naming of the Senate’s GCCA members is the latest example of how well bipartisan cooperation is working in the Oklahoma Senate. The naming of GCCA members is further evidence of the Senate’s efforts to bring the 2007 legislative session to an orderly and timely adjournment.”

GCCA members, most of whom are divided into five sub-committees, will join House members named to the conference committee in writing the budgets of more than 80 state agencies. Sub-committee members, listed below, will be joined on GCCA by Co-Floor Leaders Senator Charles Laster and Owen Laughlin; and Co-Appropriations Committee Chairmen Senator Mike Johnson and Senator Johnnie Crutchfield.
