OK Rep calls for crack down on fraternities

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)- An Oklahoma lawmaker is calling for state university leaders to crack down on fraternities that promote alcohol and drug use at their parties.

The call comes in response to the recent death of a Florida State University fraternity member. Another student from a different FSU fraternity is also facing cocaine charges.

Oklahoma Representative Todd Russ tasked universities to stop supporting organizations promoting that behavior:

"The idea that parents are sending their teenagers to college to enhance their recreational experience is a gross misunderstanding by our university leaders. Running taxpayer-supported colleges in Oklahoma is not a popularity contest."
