Committees and Caucuses

I currently serve on three committees in the House of Representatives: the House Committee on Agriculture, the House Committee on Financial Services, and the House Committee on Science and Technology. Each of these committees in which I serve involves key issues important to the Third District of Oklahoma and it is a pleasure to be a part of each one of them. You can find a list of the committees I serve on below:

House Committee on Agriculture

While I currently serve as Chairman of the Conservation and Forestry Subcommittee, I am also a member of the General Farm Commodities and Risk Management Subcommittee. The jurisdiction of the House Agriculture Committee includes oversight of USDA and its various agencies and programs, such as the Conservation Reserve Program, Disaster Assistance, Rural Development, Livestock Compensation, and Crop Insurance and Food Safety. In addition, the Committee has jurisdiction over the Food and Drug Administration and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission.

As a senior member on the House Financial Services Committee, I serve on both the Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee and the Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee. The House Financial Services Committee has jurisdiction over a number of policy matters including: banking, housing, insurance, finance. The committee also conducts oversight of institutions such as the Federal Reserve and the Treasury.
