Pro Tem Treat announces committee chairs, vice chairs, Also announces GOP committee assignments

OKLAHOMA CITY – Senate President Pro Tempore Greg Treat on Tuesday announced his appointments of chairs and vice chairs of Senate committees. Treat also announced Republican committee assignments.

Treat said an important change to committees this session is on the Veterans and Military Affairs Committee. Treat has named as members of that committee senators who represent military facilities in the state of Oklahoma.

“In January, a new administration will take office in Washington and it will have a new philosophy on military and foreign affairs. We don’t know yet what this means for the military posts in Oklahoma but it’s important we work together at the state and federal level to protect those facilities,” said Treat, R-Oklahoma City. “I appointed members to serve on the Senate Veterans and Military Affairs Committee who represent those critically important bases and installations and know they will work closely with our federal delegation to promote Oklahoma’s strong support of the brave men and women who serve in our Armed Forces.”

Due to Capitol renovations in Senate space, some committee room numbers have changed. Room 419A is now Room 4S.7. Room 419B is now Room 4S.8. Room 419C is now 4S.9. Room 511A is now 5S.3. The meeting times and locations of Senate committees are included in the list below.

Per Senate rules, the Minority Leader will make committee assignments for the Democratic Caucus, including five appointments to the Appropriations Committee.
