OKLAHOMA CITY – Sen. Kim David was tapped for one of the Senate’s leadership roles Wednesday when she was elected as a Majority Whip. This will be the Tulsa Republican’s third session as she was elected in November 2010.
“I’m so pleased to have been entrusted with a leadership role for our caucus. It truly is an honor and I’m looking forward to getting to work,” said David. “We will continue to focus on our pro-jobs agenda and strengthening Oklahoma’s economy this coming session. It’s imperative that our caucus be united in supporting legislation that will help us accomplish these goals and I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues in this effort.”
The Majority Whip is responsible for assisting the members of their party in working with their colleagues in determining and informing the leadership of the members’ positions on issues.
Although their new committee assignments have not been announced, David has served as Chair of the Appropriation Subcommittee on Health and Human Services as well as a member of the Appropriations, Education, Finance, Public Safety, and Veterans and Military Affairs Committees.
