Washington, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas today made the following statement after Senator Tom Coburn announced he will resign his seat at the end of the 113th legislative session.

“Dr. Coburn has proven to be a dedicated servant to the people of the great state of Oklahoma,” said Congressman Frank Lucas. “Throughout his tenure, he has worked tirelessly to provide ways to cut government waste, eliminate fraud and abuse of taxpayer’s dollars, and create economic certainty for all Americans. His commitment to solving our country’s fiscal crises serves as a true testament to his hard-working spirit.  He has been an influential leader during his time in office, and I know he will accomplish more as he finishes out the 113th session. I respect his decision to retire from the Senate, and I wish him and his family only the best in their future.”
