Thirty One State Lawmakers Make Up New Non Partisan OKFB Caucus

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 14:37:29 CST

Thirty One State Lawmakers Make Up New Non Partisan OKFB Caucus The Oklahoma Farm Bureau has established what they are calling the OKFB Caucus. Comprised of Farm Bureau-members in the state legislature, the OKFB Caucus is a non-partisan group created to foster fellowship and discussion of agricultural and rural policy issues.

“As Oklahoma continually becomes more urban and less rural, it’s important for those who value agriculture and the rural way of life to join forces,” said Tom Buchanan, OKFB president. “This group is designed to ensure farmers and ranchers, and rural Oklahoma, continues to thrive into the future.”

Among the members of the Caucus is the new Senate President Pro Tem Mike Schulz, who is a Jackson County farmer and a former staff member for the organization. Two former Presidents of the organization are also a part of the Caucus, Democrat Representative Steve Kouplen and newly elected Senator Roland Pederson, who served for several months as State President after the removal of Mike Spradling and before the election of Tom Buchanan.

The inaugural members are listed below. An asterisk (*) denotes newly-elected legislators.
