Democratic committee appointments, caucus posts announced

Senate Democratic Leader Randy Bass unveiled caucus leadership positions and committee appointments Tuesday for the 55th Legislature. Bass said his members would use those roles to ensure all Oklahomans have a voice at the state Capitol.

“As the minority party, we know that we aren’t always able to press our agenda or tout big legislative wins,” said Bass, D-Lawton. “However, we are able to provide balance where there isn’t any and contrast when it is needed. We work to shine light on important issues, ask the hard questions, and hold people accountable. I’m proud to work with this fine group of public servants. Their commitment to the hard working Oklahomans they represent is both admirable and appreciated.”
