President Pro Tempore Bingman gives condolences to families of OSU plane crash victims

"As with all Oklahomans we were deeply saddened to learn of Thursday’s fatal plane crash. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of former State Senator Olin Branstetter and his wife Paula as well as the families of coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna.

“It is heartbreaking to see the Oklahoma State University family again suffer tragedy—and for the second time in a week, the Senate family is grieving the loss of a fine public servant from the Ponca City community. We ask all Oklahomans to join with us in prayers for strength and healing for all those mourning these losses.”
