This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel and Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill about the Office of Management and Enterprise Services announcing it had taken $240M from the state's Rainy Day Fund to pay for operating expenses and the House heats up with a bill to provide a $34M supplemental appropriation to the Department of Human Services.

The trio also discusses House Speaker Charles McCall says he has been in talks with the Governor and Senate leaders about a plan to pay for teacher salary increases and the State Supreme Court replaces original language on a medical marijuana state question after striking language from former Attorney General Scott Pruitt.
