Edmond legislator named to national transportation committee


Edmond Rep. Nicole Miller has been named vice chair of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Transportation Committee.

Miller, a Republican, was elected in 2018 and represents House District 81 in northwest Oklahoma City, West Edmond & Deer Creek. She currently serves as the chair of the House Appropriations & Budget Subcommittee on Transportation, which oversees funding for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation, the Oklahoma Department of Aeronautics and Aerospace and the Oklahoma Space Industry Development Authority.

“It is both an honor and a privilege to be asked to serve as vice chair of NCSL’s Transportation Committee,” Miller said. “I am eager to work together with my counter parts in other States to tackle challenges and champion innovative solutions.”

The NCSL Transportation Committee develops policy on state-federal issues related to aviation, transit, infrastructure and other similar topics to guide NCSL’s advocacy efforts in Washington, D.C. While most of the committee’s work is done virtually, the committee will meet once in-person during the Legislative Summit.

Miller will serve a two year term as vice chair of the committee, during which time NCSL will celebrate its 50th anniversary.

NCSL is a bipartisan organization that serves the legislators and staffs of the states, commonwealths and territories. It provides research, technical assistance and opportunities for policymakers to exchange ideas on the most pressing state issues.
