OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Congressman Markwayne Mullin says he's been named to a committee that will study ways to improve the transportation of freight in the U.S.
Mullin — a Republican — was named to the 11-member committee that was developed by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. It will be chaired by Republican Rep. John Duncan Jr. of Tennessee.
Mullin says the committee will work for six months in an effort to find ways to improve all forms of freight transportation — including rails, highways, ports, inland waterways, pipelines and air carriers.
