Governor's Absence Doesn't Leave State Leaderless

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) --With Governor Brad Henry in Hawaii and Lieutenant Governor Mary Fallin in Washington, the president pro tem of the Senate, Mike Morgan, is acting governor.

Morgan has been acting governor since Henry flew to Hawaii Tuesday to participate in groundbreaking for a memorial to honor the 429 sailors and Marines who died aboard the USS Oklahoma during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor 65 years ago.

Fallin was elected to the 5th Congressional District last month. She will be in Washington DC through Friday for organizational meetings.

After the state House speaker, the line of succession moves to statewide elected officials beginning with the auditor and inspector, attorney general, state treasurer, superintendent of public instruction, commissioner of labor and members of the Corporation Commission.
