Okla Lawmakers' Golf Outing Draws Ire (Apr 28, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Senate and House leaders adjourned the Legislature early this week and several key lawmakers flew to Arizona for a golf outing with lobbyists. Some members are complaining the trip disrupted legislative business and allowed bills to die in the Senate and House for lack of action.

About a half-dozen lawmakers, including Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman and House Floor Leader Dan Sullivan, flew to Arizona on Thursday to play golf in Tucson with several lobbyists.

The Legislature is normally in session Thursday, and state Rep. Randy Terrill called the timing of the trip "problematic."

However, Bingman and House Speaker Kris Steele both say the early adjournment was a cost-saving move and had nothing to do with the golf trip.
