Statement from Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman on the passing of former Senator Bill Gustafson

Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman on Tuesday issued the following statement on the passing of former state Senator Bill Gustafson. An El Reno Republican, Gustafson served two terms representing District 22 in the state Senate, from 1990 to 1998. In 1996, he was elected by Senate Republicans to serve as Minority Leader.

“Bill Gustafson served his state and country with honor. He was a distinguished veteran and a recipient of the Purple Heart for wounds received in combat in the Korean War. As a Senator, he was a powerful advocate for Oklahoma veterans, and a leading voice on economic development issues. He was a hard-working member and an effective leader for the Republican caucus. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family in their time of mourning.”—Senate Pres. Pro Tempore Brian Bingman, R-Sapulpa
