Rep. Eric Roberts, R-Oklahoma City, was recently appointed to the Energy & Environment Committee for the Council of State Governments (CSG) by House Speaker Charles McCall, R-Atoka.

CSG is the nation's largest nonpartisan organization serving all three branches of state elected and appointed officials. The Energy & Environment Committee hosts regional summits to exchange ideas for effective legislation and organizes programs to create regional strategies to address shared energy and environmental concerns. The committee is comprised of state officials from all levels of government.

Oklahoma City will host the 76th Annual CSG Southern Legislative Conference in July.

"Energy is a critical driver in Oklahoma's economy," Roberts said. “I’m glad to be a part of a group that will give me the opportunity to highlight the contributions of the energy industry, along with balancing environmental concerns."

Roberts was elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives in Nov. 2020 after nearly three decades as a business owner and commercial real estate developer. He served on the MAPS 3 Oversight Committee of Oklahoma City and on the Board of Ozarks Teen Challenge.
