Welcome to the 111th Congress

Jan 13, 2009
Frankly Speaking

I would like to welcome all of you to the 111th Congress.  Thanks to the great people of the Third Congressional District of Oklahoma, this will mark my ninth term as a member of the United States House of Representatives.  I will maintain my position on the House Committee on Financial Services and the House Committee on Science and Technology.  In addition, I have been selected to serve as the Ranking Member, or Republican leader, of the House Committee on Agriculture. 

This Congress already faces many challenges, including the recent downturn of our economy, inconsistent energy prices, and a continued threat by terrorist organizations around the world and at home.  These are serious times, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to come up with real solutions that benefit the American taxpayer. 

No matter the issue, I want to reassure my constituents that I will continue to represent their values and fight for legislation that cuts taxes, limits government intrusion into the private sector, and protects our interests at home and abroad.
