WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) spoke with the State Chamber of Oklahoma today during their annual visit to Washington. Inhofe discussed current legislative priorities, national defense, and the importance of regulatory reform.
“I enjoyed visiting with the State Chamber of Oklahoma in Washington,” Inhofe said. “Since January, Congress, working with President Donald Trump, has seen remarkable success rolling back regulations that stifled job growth in Oklahoma. I look forward to continuing to hear from the Chamber and businesses across the state about how we can work together to make it easier for Oklahoma’s businesses to grow.”
Sen. Inhofe also spoke about the importance of preventing a base realignment and closure round, or BRAC:
“Oklahomans know the value military communities and installations have on our economy and our national security. As we debate the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) this week, I’ve led the effort to prevent the Senate from authorizing a BRAC round in the legislation. As we face more and more threats to America than ever before, now is not the time to consider a BRAC.”
