Lucas Opening Statement at Public Hearing for Farm Bill

2018/09/05

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3), Chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation and Forestry, delivered an opening statement as a conferee on the congressional conference committee for the 2018 Farm Bill.

The pundits in this town said there would never be another bad day in rural America, so you don’t need a farm bill. We created a safety net, knowing that there would be another bad day. Cash commodity prices are essentially half of what they were when we last met. That adds to the importance of passing another farm bill.”

Lucas Statement on President Trump’s Meeting with Russian President Putin

2018/07/17

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-3) released the following statement today after President Donald Trump visited with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the U.S.-Russia summit in Helsinki:

“Maintaining an open dialogue with world leaders is central to the president’s job in protecting American interests. However, in this case, it is critical to not lose sight of Russia’s abysmal history of human rights abuse, military aggression, and violent intimidation of its ideological adversaries.”

“Let’s be clear. Under former KGB agent Putin, Russian entities have meddled in western democracies in order to destabilize and manipulate political outcomes. In light of this, President Trump should be forthright and unwavering in denouncing Russia’s efforts to influence the American election process.”

Lucas, Cole Applaud KC-46 Tanker Delivery Agreement

2018/06/22

Washington, D.C. – Representatives Frank Lucas (OK-03) and Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the U.S. Air Force and Boeing announced their respective agreement for the first KC-46 Tanker delivery in October 2018. Altus Air Force Base, in Lucas’ district, will be one of the first military installations to receive a delivery.

“The announcement of the first KC-46 Tanker deliveries is great news for Altus Air Force Base and the surrounding community,” said Congressman Lucas. "I am proud of the hardworking men and women at this base whose efforts have made Altus the best option for the KC-46A Formal Training Unit, and it is always encouraging to see projects like this generate economic growth in Oklahoma’s Third District. For 75 years, Altus AFB has played a critical role in our country’s national defense, and today we are excited to see that mission expand even further.”

“As a member of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, I am thrilled that the KC-46 Tanker delivery schedule has been announced,” said Congressman Cole. "The Air Force and other services will greatly benefit from this highly capable aircraft, which is a militarized version of the Boeing 767. The ability to conduct in-flight refueling, as well as provide a cargo deck with three times as much cargo and twice as many passengers as the existing KC-135, is a tremendous improvement for our warfighters.”

In October, four KC-46 Tankers will be delivered to McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kansas, and then four will be delivered to Altus Air Force Base in Altus, Oklahoma.

In 2016, Tinker Air Force Base broke ground on its KC-46 Sustainment Campus which will be the location for repairs, maintenance and overhauls throughout the lifecycle of the tankers.
