Late lawmaker to be honored

Several state lawmakers will unveil a stretch of highway Thursday that will be named in honor of Rep. Sue Tibbs, who died last year. Legislation passed and signed into law in 2012 designated a portion of U.S. 169 in Tulsa as the “Representative Sue Tibbs Memorial Highway.” Reps. Dan Kirby, R-Tulsa, Jeff Hickman, R-Fairview, and Pam Peterson, R-Tulsa, along with state Public Safety Commissioner Michael Thompson, will unveil the memorial signs during a news conference Thursday at the Tulsa Technology Center. Tibbs, a Republican from Tulsa who served as chairman of the House of Representatives Public Safety Committee, died in April 2012 after a lengthy battle with cancer.
