The 31st Ponca City Leadership Class had an amazing session on state government. They had the opportunity to sit in on both the house and senate galleries while they were in session. They had speakers from the Oklahoma Historical Society, Dept. of Agriculture, Department of Tourism and our elected legislators. H.J. Reed gave the class a tour of the capitol building. They also toured the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial.
H.J. Reed, Phillips 66 lobbyist gave a great tour of the capitol. The state capitol is under major renovation at this time. H.J. also was one of our speakers for the day. Senator Fields assistant Cindy Stevens put the day together for us. H.J. Reed provided lunch for the class.
One of the highlights of State Government Day is watching our legislators at work. Both the Senate and House galleries are beautiful.
