Armes is an auctioneer as well as a farmer and rancher. He and his wife, Dede, have two children: Katy and Kelsey.
Rep. Armes conducted a study to look into the possibility of using electronics devices instead of standard textbooks in the classroom. He hopes the switch will save schools money during the financial crisis burdening schools.
“Our children have already taken that giant leap into technology so this would not be an adjustment for them. Now we just need to see if it’s financially feasible,” said Armes, a Faxon Republican. “We have over 659,000 students in Oklahoma and if we could even save $10 per student on changing a book over to an electronic technology format, that would save over $6 million for Oklahoma schools.”
In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Armes has been appointed to the following committees:
- Appropriations & Budget Committee, Oklahoma House of Representatives
- Economic Development, Tourism and Financial Services Committee, Oklahoma State House
- Energy & Utility Regulation Committee, Oklahoma House of Representatives
- Rules Committee, Oklahoma House of Representatives
- Subcommittee on Natural Resources and Regulatory Services, Chair
In the 2009-2010 legislative session, Armes served on the following committees:
