OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today issued this statement congratulating newly elected and returning legislators of the 56th Legislature on taking their oaths of office:
“Congratulations to the returning and newly elected members of the Oklahoma Senate and House of Representatives on taking their official oaths of office. I look forward to working with them as we work to make Oklahoma a stronger, more prosperous state for our residents to live, work and raise a family.
