BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A longtime North Dakota state legislator who served one term in the U.S. House has died.
Officials with Osheim & Schmidt Funeral Home in Rapid City, S.D., say Rolland “Rollie” Redlin died Friday at his Rapid City home. He was 91.
The Divide County farmer and Minot banker served 17 sessions in the North Dakota Legislature. He was first elected in 1958, and left the Senate in 1964 when he won the U.S. House seat. He was defeated two years later.
Redlin returned to the state Senate in 1973. He retired after the 1999 session.
Redlin long pushed the idea of annual sessions.
Survivors include his wife, Christine, and five children.
Services are scheduled Thursday at Calvary Lutheran Church in Rapid City, and Saturday at Concordia Lutheran Church in Crosby.
