Inhofe Statement in Remembrance of Phil Tomlinson

WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) released the following statement in remembrance of Phil Tomlinson, former Oklahoma secretary of transportation:

“My prayers are with the family and loved ones of Phil Tomlinson during this difficult time. While Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works, I had the privilege of working with Phil as part of the ODOT team. Together we worked to ensure SAFETEA-LU met the needs of Oklahomans and to make our highways an economic gateway for goods moving out of Oklahoma and across the nation. His legacy will forever be remembered in the large transportation projects that Oklahomans benefit from on a daily basis, such as the development of Route 66 into I-40. Phil had a brilliant mind for business and was always eager to advance opportunities for others around him. His friendship and leadership in the state will be greatly missed.”
