Pres. Pro Tem Bingman Comments on Sen. Rice’s Resignation

"Though we may not have always seen eye-to-eye on every issue, I have nothing but respect for Senator Rice and his service to the state of Oklahoma. He is compassionate, intellectually honest, and relentless in the defense of his constituents. I could not have asked for a better Senate colleague and Minority Leader counterpart.

While saddened to learn of Senator Rice's resignation, I am excited for him and his family as they pursue new opportunities. I'm honored to count Andrew and his wife, Apple, as friends—surely they will be missed by many Oklahomans. I wish their family the very best as they embark on the next chapter in their lives."
