State Law Challenges, Tuition Increase Requests & Special Election Date

Jun 23, 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 constitutional challenges against a state law to crackdown on drunk drivers and another to increase fees on a pack of cigarettes by a $1.50 and calls by the state's two biggest universities to ask for tuition increases in light of budget cuts from state lawmakers.

The trio also discusses a special election date set for Tulsa Republican Senator Dan Newberry who announced his retirement at the end of January next year and Transportation Secretary Gary Ridley announces his retirement after spending more than 50 years in public service.
