For And To Oklahomans


When lawmakers adjourned sine die late last month, it wasn’t just the end of the 59th Oklahoma Legislature. It was the end of a leadership era, too.

Senate President Pro Tem Greg Treat and House Speaker Charles McCall are two of the longest serving top dawgs in their respective chambers in Oklahoma history – Treat serving three two-year sessions in charge of the Senate, McCall four sessions atop the House.

Their longevity alone gave Treat and McCall myriad opportunities to craft and cement legislative and public policy legacies that few of their predecessors could have even dreamed of.

To better understand the Treat and McCall years – and to better grasp what they did for and to Oklahoma – former Senate President Pro Tem Cal Hobson joins us for this week’s Observercast to look back at the Treat-McCall era and the uncertain leadership ahead given Tuesday’s GOP primary election results.
