Jun 1, 2018

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel and Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill about a statement from the Attorney General's Office supporting a referendum petition to repeal a tax to pay for raises to teachers, school support staff and state workers while at the same time Attorney General Mike Hunter faces a heated primary against challenger Gentner Drummond over the airwaves.

The trio also discusses an initiative petition to put eye exams in big box stores like Wal-Mart, Oklahoma's diminishing supply of people to work at polling places on Election Day and the incoming leader of the Senate announces his leadership team to include the first female Majority Floor Leader.
