WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senator James Lankford (R-OK) recently spoke on the Senate floor about his plans for the upcoming August work period while the Senate is not in regular session.

To encourage others to visit Oklahoma, he praised a number of specific locations he has been and will go in the state during his travels to connect with constituents and hear perspectives on the work before the Senate.

“I happen to live in an unbelievably beautiful state,” Lankford said. “And in Oklahoma in August, it’s crazy hot and humid, but it’s a great time to get a chance to be able to see people and to see what’s going on. In just the few weeks around this time period, I’ve already been to Ada and Durant and Calera.”

Lankford plans to engage in a number of public events throughout the state during the upcoming state work period, and details will be made public for those events when they are finalized.

“I look forward to getting a chance to see when I get back home in August,” Lankford said. “So as much work as we have to get done here and we still have a lot of good work to get done, we’ll spend some time on the phone, we’ll walk through legislation, and we’ll continue to do writing. But thankfully, I’ll be able to do writing and time on the phone, looking out my windshield, enjoying some Oklahoma scenery while I do it at the same time.”
