Adair legislator tapped for Joint Legislative Task Force for GRDA

OKLAHOMA CITY –   State Senator Micheal Bergstrom was appointed this week to serve on the Joint Legislative Task Force on The Grand River Dam Authority by Senate President Pro Tempore Greg Treat. The Republican legislator from Adair replaces former state Senator Eddie Fields.

The task force was created to study the functions, activities, policies, procedures and expenditures performed by the district and any related issue the task force deems appropriate.  Five members of the Senate and five members of the House of Representatives are appointed by the President Pro Tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, respectively.

“I’m honored to be chosen to serve in this capacity on the task force,” said Bergstrom.  “I look forward to working with the GRDA and my fellow legislative task force members to ensure the services continue to provide affordable and reliable electric power to customers.”

Bergstrom also serves as vice-chair of the Senate Transportation committee, and is a member of the Business, Commerce & Tourism and the Public Safety committees.  Bergstrom, a former educator, also serves on the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee for Education.

Bergstrom was elected to the Senate in 2016.
