Sad to hear of the passing of Jim Hamilton, former Senate President Pro Tempore and former House budget chairman. I enjoyed serving in the House with him, where he was known as a fiscal conservative and someone who fought for his constituents.
Giving my last scheduled public speech as governor to members of this year's Leadership Oklahoma class, who were at the Capitol today to learn about our state’s legislative process & budget. Being selected to Leadership Oklahoma is a great opportunity to enhance leadership skills
Glad to be able to meet many of the people whose sentences for nonviolent crimes I commuted last month to time served. I asked them to remember those who worked with them to gain their release and those who placed their trust in them such as the Pardon and Parole Board and myself
More jobs for Oklahoma! The HWH Group has selected Durant as the site for Salem Tube's North American headquarters and advanced manufacturing facility.
Thanking construction companies, architects & state employees who are doing a great job renovating the state Capitol. Exterior work, under the direction of @JEDunn, should be finished this year while interior work, under the direction of @ManhattanBuild should be done in 2022.
What was it like to be governor the past eight years? Tune in for this evening’s telecast of @ONR at 7 on @OETAOK for Susan Cadot’s interview.

Happy for @kdroege, who serves as secretary of science and technology on my executive Cabinet, on being confirmed by the U.S. Senate as director of the Office of Science and Technology.
As my term ends, I'm thankful for the opportunity to serve and optimistic about Oklahoma's future.
Congratulations to Randy McDaniel, who was sworn in today as state treasurer by Supreme Court Justice James Winchester. I appointed Randy to fill the unexpired term that ends Jan. 14. Randy was elected treasurer in November, and will be sworn in on Jan. 14 to his full 4-year term

Merry Christmas! Best wishes for a happy holiday season.…

Received word from @SBAgov that Cherokee County may now receive disaster assistance as a result of tornadoes and severe storms that occurred Nov. 30.
I commuted the sentences of 9 nonviolent offenders who were incarcerated for 10 years or more for offenses that now carry no prison term or a significantly shorter prison term. Eight were commuted to time served, meaning they will be home for Christmas.
Presiding at today's state Board of Equalization meeting, where it was estimated lawmakers in the upcoming legislative session will have an extra $612 million to spend in the 2020 fiscal year, which begins July 1.

Tune in or set your DVD player this morning to Flashpoint at 9:30 a.m. @kfor. I’ll be talking about wrapping up my public service, and my decision last week to commute 21 nonviolent prisoners.
(2 of 2) The flags at half-staff today have a special meaning – honoring the many Oklahomans and Americans who were killed Dec. 7, 1941, as a result of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and remembering our 41st president, George H.W. Bush.…
American and Oklahoma flags on state property continue to fly at half-staff during this period of honor as we stop to think about a former president and a generation of Americans who answered the call to defend our nation.… (1 of 2)
I've declared a state of emergency for all 77 Oklahoma counties due to severe winter weather predicted for the state. Winter storms, snow, ice, and freezing rain are expected to impact different parts of the state through the weekend.
Glad to welcome @NCOILorg, an organization of state legislators whose main area of public policy concern is insurance legislation and regulation, to Oklahoma for its annual meeting in downtown Oklahoma City. About 70 legislators from more than 30 states are attending.
Pleased to speak at the 39th Annual Governor’s Water Conference & Research Symposium in Midwest City. Whether it be to water our crops and livestock, generate electricity, or provide clean and safe drinking water, we have to do everything we can to make each drop count.

(2 of 2) President George H.W. Bush had a lifetime of public service before he became president — as a Navy pilot in World War II, Texas congressman, CIA director and faithful vice president to Ronald Reagan. He also leaves behind a legacy of volunteerism and service.
Let us pause during this national day of mourning to reflect on former President George H.W. Bush, whose funeral is today. He guided our nation & the world to a peaceful & victorious conclusion of the Cold War and treated people fairly, regardless of political party. (1 of 2)
Enjoyed taking part in tonight’s annual Christmas tree lighting. Thanks to all those who worked on making today’s event successful, and thanks to the students from 25 schools selected from across the state to decorate small Christmas trees inside.
Having a great time at the state Capitol with @joy4ok & Santa Claus viewing Christmas trees decorated by students from 25 schools selected from across the state. Later, at 5:30 this evening we will gather outside the south plaza of the Capitol to light the Capitol Christmas Tree.
I've declared a state of emergency for 12 counties due to severe storms, tornadoes and straight-line winds that occurred Friday, Nov. 30.
Proud of the success of the Department of Commerce in recruiting new jobs during my time as governor, which has helped reduce Oklahoma’s unemployment rate from 6.2% when I took office to 3.4% today. We’ve created new jobs and diversified our economy.…
I’ve directed that all American and Oklahoma flags on state property be flown at half-staff for a period of 30 days from Nov. 30 to honor the life and legacy of George Herbert Walker Bush, our nation’s beloved and honored 41st president.…
Former President George H.W. Bush will always have my respect for his service, character, and love for his wife, Barbara, and their family. As our 41st president, he vowed to lead a ‘kinder, gentler nation.’ He treated people fairly, regardless of political party.
Making a friendly wager with @GovAbbott on the outcome of Saturday’s Big 12 championship football game between @OU_Athletics and @UTexas_Sports. He's putting up some Texas BBQ and I'm wagering Head Country BBQ Sauce from Ponca City. Go Sooners!
Looking forward to Tuesday's Christmas Tree lighting event at the state Capitol. It's at 5:30 p.m. on the south plaza. Before that, about 600 students from across the state are expected to decorate 25 small Christmas trees inside the Capitol.
Taking part in a panel discussion with other governors completing their second terms during a session at the annual conference of @The_RGA. We discussed major lessons we learned during our time in office to the audience, which included several newly elected GOP governors.
Happy to take park in a groundbreaking ceremony for a new office building for @oid411 north of the state Capitol. The project was made possible by legislation that allows @oid411 to own the building and lease the land from the Commissioners of the Land Office.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Daniel Keating, especially his wife, Kathy, and his brother, former Gov. Frank Keating. I appointed Dan to the State Board of Education, where he strived to ensure Oklahoma's schools delivered a high-quality education. [[SHORT_URLT]]
Wishing everyone in Oklahoma a safe, happy and blessed holiday. I certainly am thankful to the people of Oklahoma for giving me the opportunity these past eight years to serve as their governor.…
During this Thanksgiving holiday, I'm especially thankful for Oklahomans who have stepped up to be a foster or adoptive parent. I'm also grateful for faith-based entities that have played a significant role in helping Oklahoma recruit more foster homes.
At a press conference to express appreciation to the numerous companies throughout the state that are taking part in Career Exposure Week. One goal is to create more work-based learning opportunities for Oklahoma students, such as internships, apprenticeships, and job shadowing.
(2 of 2) The Turner Turnpike project, which includes lighting down the middle and wide shoulders, is 6-9 months ahead of schedule and under budget.
Just in time for holiday travel, the first 8 miles of a 20-mile-long project to expand and improve the Turner Turnpike is open for motorists. Proud to take part in a ceremony opening up six lanes – up from four - for motorists on that 8-mile stretch just west of Tulsa. (1 of 2)
(2 of 2) Roy Clark loved Oklahoma, and enjoyed living in Tulsa. Roy, who was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame in 1982, supported many philanthropic projects and organizations in our state. He will be missed.
Oklahoma lost a true friend and a musical treasure with the passing of Roy Clark. He was a talented entertainer, a fantastic guitarist and banjo player as well as a terrific television performer. We all got a chuckle from his corny jokes on "Hee Haw." (1 of 2)
Proud that Oklahoma and Arkansas state agencies have completed a memorandum of agreement committing our states to future collaboration in addressing water quality concerns related to the Illinois River.
Too few Oklahomans are getting the treatment they need for substance abuse and mental health issues. We simply must start focusing on treatment and reintegrating these nonviolent offenders. Research shows this will result in lower crime rates and lower rates of recidivism.
Explaining Oklahoma’s progress in criminal justice reform efforts the past 3 years during a panel discussion with @LouisianaGov, to my right, and @GovMalloyOffice, on my left, during a criminal justice reform summit sponsored by Rolling Stone and Variety magazines in Los Angeles.
Thanks to all those who supported my Feeding Oklahoma Drive, a month-long effort benefiting @rfbo, and @okfoodbank, and their partner agencies across the state.
This year, as we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the November 11, 1918, signing of the Armistice that ended hostilities in World War I, it is fitting to pause and reflect on the sacrifice and service of veterans of World War I, and all veterans.…
