OKLAHOMA CITY – Rep. Jim Grego, R-Wilburton, recently was appointed by House Speaker Charles McCall to serve as a member of the Agriculture & Rural Development Committee for the Council of State Governments (CSG).


Grego currently serves on the House Agriculture & Rural Development Committee and is a longtime farmer and rancher.


"I'm pleased with the speaker's confidence in asking me to serve on this multistate committee," Grego said. "I'm excited about the opportunity to network with rural legislators from other states and glean their ideas about what works and what doesn't when it comes to legislation to help our agriculture producers and our rural areas."


CSG is the nation's largest nonpartisan organization serving all three branches of state elected and appointed officials. Oklahoma is part of CSG South. Regional offices allow state officials to connect on shared issues that are geographically based including federal lands, water rights, agriculture, border relations and more. CSG regional offices also host conferences, in-state visits and leadership development programs that allow officials to regionally network. Within these offices, CSG also houses the Eastern Regional Conference (ERC), Midwestern Legislative Conference (MLC) and the Southern Legislative Conference (SLC).


Oklahoma City will host the 76th Southern Legislative Conference in July at which CSG South will have a strong presence, including from the Oklahoma House of Representatives. In his appointment letter, McCall said this will be an opportunity to showcase the great state of Oklahoma along with the talent and dedication of the state's elected officials.
