Dear Oklahoma Friends and Neighbors...

Body
Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe, who is Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, has worked diligently again this year to provide our defense community with the important federal authority needed to continue to serve missions at home and abroad to keep us safe. The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) lays out congressional priorities for our nation’s Armed Forces and gives Congress an opportunity to consider—along with input from the Pentagon—our nation’s defense priorities for the next year. Senator Inhofe and his team have done a thorough job once again to ensure those priorities are met and that our Oklahoma military installations have the tools they need for their missions.

Legislation Supporting Rural Hospitals

Body
Washington, D.C. - This week, Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) joined his colleagues Congressman Michael Guest (MS-03) and Congresswoman Terri Sewell (AL-07) in introducing the PPP Access for Rural Hospitals Act. The legislation would allow smaller hospitals that are part of a larger health care system to waive affiliation requirements to be eligible for the Paycheck Protection Program.
