Special Session, Workers Comp & Scott Pruitt

Oct 6, 2017

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about a call by the House Majority Floor Leader for Republican Representatives to report to the State Capital to resume the special session this Monday afternoon, the State Supreme Court rejecting a portion of the 2013 Workers Compensation Overhaul removing benefits from workers who miss two or more medical appointments and Scott Pruitt gets criticized for spending nearly $15,000 in one days worth of air travel across Oklahoma.

The trio also discusses new legislation from Oklahoma Senator James Lankford to fix DACA and news that Chickasha Republican Representative Scott Biggs failed to report more than $10,000 of contributions to his 2014 reelection campaign.
