While a 2nd year law student, he was elected to the Oklahoma Legislature where he served his Jackson County constituents in the House of Representatives for eight years.

In 1970, Larry was elected to the office of Attorney General of the State of Oklahoma. As Attorney General, he established the Consumer Protection Division and the State Narcotics Commission as parts of his office. Larry always put duty before self-service and was a shining example of integrity throughout his career. His dedication to the betterment of the State of Oklahoma will never be forgotten.
This Executive Order shall be forwarded to the Department of Capital Assets Management, who shall cause the provisions of this Order to be implemented by all appropriate agencies of State government.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Oklahoma to be affixed at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, this 22nd day of November, 2016.
