Republican House Rules Silences the Voices of Oklahomans

Oklahoma City– Today Democratic Leader Cyndi Munson (D-Oklahoma City) responded to the adoption of the House Rules for the 59th Oklahoma Legislature.

“As representatives, all of us on the House Floor represent the same number of Oklahomans,” said Representative Cyndi Munson (D-Oklahoma City.) “By leaving out every member of the Democratic Caucus out of the drafting of the rules, the Republican majority effectively silenced the voices of every Oklahoman our caucus represents. We requested a small change so that we can work towards being a more inclusive body that respects the diversity of our state. By denying our members the opportunity for input and targeting individual members, the majority missed the opportunity for Democrats and Republicans to work together for a better Oklahoma.”
