Legislators Visit Jenks
The first Jenks Chamber of Commerce luncheon of 2011 gave attendees a preview of what to expect in the Oklahoma Legislature this year.
State Sen. Dan Newberry and Rep. Fred Jordan discussed issues facing legislators as they return to the capitol, including the state budget, legislation affecting businesses and both legislators’ new committee assignments.
“The Chamber appreciates greatly the work both Rep. Jordan and Sen. Newberry do at the capitol,” says Jenks Chamber President Josh Driskell. “We enjoyed hearing from them about what they expect to happen this year and how it will affect our members and businesses around the state.”
Jordan, first elected in 2006 to represent HD 69, is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. Jordan maintains an active law practice with Fellers Snider law firm in the Firm’s Tulsa office. His practice focuses on civil and business litigation, as well as Social Security and Veteran’s disability representation.
Newberry, currently serving his first term representing SD 37, is chairman of the Business and Commerce Committee and will serve as a majority whip. He has over 13 years of business experience in the area. He works to achieve lower taxes and less government while setting higher goals for education.
The luncheon was held Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2011 at noon at the Holiday Inn Express – Jenks.
