Perryman to Serve on Four House Committees
OKLAHOMA CITY – Minority Floor Leader David Perryman, D-Chickasha, is slated to serve on four House committees when the 57th Legislature convenes in February.
Perryman, a rural legislator, is focused on representing his rural constituents throughout the committee process.
Serving on the House Agriculture & Rural Development Committee and the House County & Municipal Government Committee should provide many opportunities to advocate for rural Oklahoma.
“My committee assignments will be beneficial to the citizens of rural Oklahoma,” Perryman said. “I have long supported legislation that improves the quality of life across our state, particularly in those rural communities where families want to raise their children and enjoy the benefit of quality schools and quality health care. The Agriculture & Rural Development Committee and the County and Municipal Government Committee directly relate to those needs.”
Additionally, Perryman sees his addition to the House Banking, Financial Services and Pensions Committee as an opportunity to add a rural perspective into the committee’s decision-making process.
“Investment in rural Oklahoma is essential to the economic health of our state. My membership on the Banking, Financial Services and Pensions Committee will allow me to bring a rural perspective to that committee,” Perryman said.
Perryman will also rely on his experience as an attorney to help reform Oklahoma’s criminal justice system as a member of the House Judiciary Committee.
“The Speaker has again appointed me to serve on the Judiciary Committee,” Perryman said. “I am honored, as an attorney, to bring an understanding of the needs of Oklahomans regarding the Judiciary, the Judicial System and the important role that branch of government plays in our society.”
