DC Notes: Republican Rep.-elect Markwayne Mullin says he’ll oppose higher tax revenue
Mullin and Oklahoma senators says state secession unrealistic; White House sets date for fourth annual tribal nations conference in Washington
WASHINGTON — Markwayne Mullin made his first trip to Washington last week as one of Oklahoma’s two congressmen-elect. And though he’s still finding his way around Capitol Hill, he knows where he stands on the biggest issue here now.
“I’m not for raising taxes on anyone — period,” said Mullin, a Republican who will succeed retiring Democratic Rep. Dan Boren in the House next year.
