Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman on Thursday issued the following statement on the passing of former Transportation Secretary and Commission Chairman Herschal H. Crow, Jr. Crow, who was 80, served in the Senate (D-Altus, District 25) from 1969 through 1982. He passed away unexpectedly Wednesday morning days after surgery for a broken hip.

“Secretary Crow was a dedicated public servant who worked tirelessly to bring attention to our state’s critical transportation needs. The infrastructure improvements that resulted from his efforts continue to benefit the state.

“On behalf of the Senate, we’re grateful for all Herschal did on behalf of Oklahoma, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.”—Senate Pres. Pro Tempore Brian Bingman, R-Sapulpa
