Rep. Brian Hill, R-Mustang, has been appointed by House Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka, to the Governor’s Council for Workforce and Economic Development.

“Right now, Oklahoma is in a prime position to push for expanded workforce opportunities in rural, suburban and urban areas of our state,” Hill said. “I’ve been very proud to work on workforce and economic development policy in my time with the House, and I look forward to collaborating with stakeholders from across Oklahoma and the United States to consider how we can provide better opportunities for all. I appreciate the trust Speaker McCall has placed in me by appointing me to this position.”

Hill’s term began July 9.
