State Rep. Avery Frix recently was appointed by House Speaker Charles McCall to serve as a member of the Joint Committee on State Tribal Relations. The committee is responsible for overseeing and approving agreements between tribal governments and the State of Oklahoma.
Frix, who represents McIntosh and Muskogee Counties in House district 13, is one of 10 legislators to be appointed to the committee and one of only five appointed by the speaker of the House.
“It’s an honor to be selected for this position,” said Frix, R-Muskogee. “Maintaining good-faith relationships with our tribal governments is of paramount importance in Oklahoma.”
The Committee on State Tribal Relations was first enacted in state statute in 1988.
