Speaker-elect McCall served as Speaker during the 56th Legislature and was elected by the caucus in May as House Speaker-designate for the 57th Legislature. Today’s election gave the 37 new Republican House members an opportunity to vote on leadership.

“I am grateful that my colleagues have confidence in me to lead this chamber,” said McCall, R-Atoka, who ran unopposed for the position. “We just emerged from a challenging time with great success, and I am hopeful that better economic times are ahead. The House is the chamber closest to the people, and our lawmakers have spent the last six months on the doorsteps and in town halls hearing directly from citizens.

I believe this is evidence that Oklahomans continue to trust our members to lead and solve the state’s problems.
