Oklahoma Governor Urges Review of Flight Policies by Colleges
NEW YORK —
Gov. Mary Fallin is encouraging universities in Oklahoma to review their rules and restrictions for flights involving students and staff after last week's plane crash that killed two Oklahoma State University coaches and two alums.
Fallin said Monday she plans to meet with university officials to see if additional flight regulations need to be put in place.
OSU women's basketball coach Kurt Budke, assistant coach Miranda Serna and alums Olin Branstetter and his wife, Paula, died Thursday when the plane Olin Branstetter was flying crashed near Perryville, Ark.
Fallin is an OSU graduate and plans to attend a memorial service Monday to honor the victims.
The crash comes more than a decade after 10 men associated with the men's basketball program were killed in a plane crash in Colorado.Copyright 2011 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
