Senate President Pro Tempore Greg Treat, R-Oklahoma City, announced a slate of appointments to various state agencies, boards and commissions.
The Senate pro tempore regularly makes appointments to fill spots on the various state agencies, boards and commissions. The governor and House speaker also make appointments.
Pro Tempore Treat said as the new leader of the Senate he will emphasize and prioritize the appointment process.
“The appointment process is one of the important duties of the Senate leader because agencies, boards, and commissions have a lot of input and oversight over issues like education, health care, and public safety,” Treat said. “It’s important we attract qualified, energetic, experienced people to serve our state. If you are interested in helping us move Oklahoma toward a better and brighter future, please contact my office to let us know about your interest and willingness to serve.”
