President Pro-Tem Coffee Announces Official Senate Committee Assignments

Senate President Pro Tem Designate Glenn Coffee, R-Oklahoma City, announced the composition of the twenty standing committees and Appropriations Subcommittees today.

“The citizens of Oklahoma have sent outstanding leadership to the State Senate,” said Coffee. “I appreciate the input of the Minority Leader on the composition of the committees. Nonetheless, we believe we’ve maximized the talents and experience in our membership with the official composition of our committees.

“Contrary to the assertions of the Minority Leader, the Democrats did not “hand over the reigns” to the Republicans,” Coffee continued. “In fact, the citizens of the state of Oklahoma handed the reigns to Republicans on November 4.

“I’m proud to announce the new composition of our committees, and I’m excited and proud to help move Oklahoma forward in this challenging time with this outstanding group of public servants.”
