Brecheen’s House Committee assignments are made

Oklahoma’s newest U.S. House member, Rep. Josh Brecheen has been named to serve on two House committees—Homeland Security and Budget.

The announcement was made Wednesday for his appointments in the 118th Congress. It means Oklahoma will apparently not have a House member on the House Energy and Commerce where former Rep. Markwayne Mullin, now a member of the U.S. Senate, was a long-time member.

“It is an honor to serve on both the House Committee on Homeland Security and the Budget Committee,” said Congressman Josh Brecheen. “Right now, our nation is suffering from two major crises: our national debt and an invasion on the Southern Border. The Budget Committee will oversee matters related to spending, while the Homeland Security Committee will have authority over the border.”

In his announcement, Rep. Brecheen said first and foremost on the Budget committee will be what he labeled as the “unsustainable national debt” of $31 trillion. He blamed years of reckless Washington spending for the large debt.

For Brecheen, Homeland Security will offer a chance to focus on the crisis at the southern border.

“Our open border enriches drug cartels and human traffickers and enables deadly fentanyl to pour into our communities. Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution guarantees every state protection from invasion. This section of our Constitution is violated every day that the Biden Administration willfully refuses to stop the invasion at our border.”
