For Immediate Release: January 28, 2008
Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Morgan Comments
on Resignation of Speaker Lance Cargill
“It has become apparent in recent weeks the Speaker has come under scrutiny for certain personal matters.
“If Rep. Cargill believes issues in his personal life are interfering with his ability to serve the people of this state, I believe he has made the best decision to step down from his duties as Speaker of the Oklahoma House of Representatives.
“He has always treated me with respect and it has been a pleasure working with him on issues important to our state. I wish him well during this trying time, and will keep Lance and his family in my prayers.”
