Bingman Names Myers To Head Appropriations

Senator David Myers
Senate President Pro Tempore-Designate Brian Bingman announced Wednesday his selection of Senator David Myers of Ponca City as the new chairman of the Appropriations Committee. 

"We must immediately get to work addressing another challenging budget. I know that Senator Myers is well prepared and ready to serve as Chairman of Appropriations,” said Bingman, R-Sapulpa.

"The reality is spending must be brought in line with revenues. In a difficult budget year it is increasingly important for state government to prioritize its spending and increase efficiencies so that we can continue to deliver necessary services to Oklahomans at affordable levels,” Bingman said. “Revenues are down because the private sector economy is down. Just as families and small businesses have had to cut back and find ways to balance their budgets, so will we in state government.”
