OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb are welcoming about half of the nation's lieutenant governors to Oklahoma City.
The National Lieutenant Governors Association is meeting in Oklahoma City this week with Fallin and Lamb scheduled to deliver a welcome to the group on Wednesday at the Skirvin Hotel.
Organizers say they expect about 25 lieutenant governors to attend during the three-day meeting.
Among the panels scheduled for Wednesday is one on tribal relations with leaders of the Chickasaw and Choctaw nations. Both tribes currently are involved in a water-rights lawsuit with the state over whether the tribes have a legal claim to water in their historic territories in southeast Oklahoma.
Lamb also will be named the organization's chairman, succeeding Rhode Island Lt. Gov. Elizabeth Roberts.
