House Speaker Charles McCall named state Rep. Dennis Casey as vice chair of the House Appropriations & Budget Committee.
Casey previously served as vice chair of the committee under former Speaker Jeff Hickman. Casey replaces state Rep. Kevin Wallace, who was named chair of the Appropriations Committee last month.
“Representative Casey has the experience to serve in this role, and he possesses the temperament to be an objective and thoughtful voice as we plan a long-term budget strategy for our state,” said McCall, R-Atoka.
Casey is a rancher and a retired public school teacher and superintendent. He has served House District 35 since 2010.
