The Alabama Legislature announced that state Rep. George Bandy, D-Opelika, died in a Macon, Georgia, hospital Tuesday at the age of 72.
Bandy was first elected to the Alabama House of Representatives in 1994 and represented House District 83, which includes parts of Lee and Russell counties.
The House of Representatives had a moment of silence for its fallen member.
Gov. Kay Ivey released a statement after Bandy passed away.
