Governor on Spring Break

Oklahoma City, OK – Okla. governor heads to Bahamas for spring break

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin is out of state on a family vacation leaving Lt. Governor Todd Lamb the acting governor.

Fallin spokesman Alex Weintz says the governor left Saturday afternoon for the Bahamas with her husband and three of their children. Fallin is expected to return to the state Thursday afternoon or evening.

Weintz says Fallin was expected to leave earlier on Saturday, but delayed her departure so that she could tour parts of central Oklahoma ravaged by wildfires that broke out on Friday.

The Oklahoma Constitution provides that the lieutenant governor fills the role of chief executive any time the governor leaves the state.
