OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A lobbyist and former legislator has been tapped to head up a new state agency created by the Legislature last year to oversee agency spending.

House and Senate leaders announced on Friday that the Legislative Office of Fiscal Transparency Oversight Committee picked Mike Jackson to serve as the agency’s first executive director. The former Republican lawmaker from Enid most recently served as a lobbyist for The State Chamber.

House Speaker Charles McCall and Senate President Pro Tem Greg Treat created the office last year as an independent agency to provide the Legislature and public with details on agency spending.
