SAN ANTONIO – Rep. Ken Luttrell, R-Ponca City, was elected to serve on The Energy Council’s Center for Legislative Energy and Environmental Research (CLEER) Board of Directors at the 2022 Annual Meeting last week in San Antonio.
The Energy Council is an international non-partisan legislative organization founded in 1975 to promote a balanced energy strategy and related environmental policies. CLEER provides support for the Council and helps educate members with regard to state, national and global energy issues.
“Energy is a huge part of our state’s economy and history,” Luttrell said. “It is my honor to serve with other legislators and energy partners to educate and advocate for responsible state and global energy policy, and I look forward to working in this new role.”
Luttrell was appointed to The Energy Council by Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka, in 2018 and also serves on the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee. His district includes the Phillips 66 Ponca City Refinery, which employs nearly 1,000 people in his district and is the largest refinery in Oklahoma.
Luttrell, a Republican, has served House District 37 in the Oklahoma House of Representatives since 2018. He previously served in the Legislature from 2006 to 2010, during which time he was appointed to the National Energy Council.
