“My position as Vice Chair of the Oklahoma House’s Transportation Committee has given me a favorable view of private freight rail companies, like BNSF in our region, that invest vast sums into our communities by way of infrastructure. Their spending, which comes at no expense to taxpayers, is crucial to the transportation network that moves our economy.”

Casey Murdock was elected to his first term in the Oklahoma House of Representatives in 2014 and currently serves as the Vice Chair of the House Transportation Committee. He represents the 61st House district that covers the panhandle of Oklahoma.
