Vetoes and Signings, Teacher Raise Lawsuit & the Oklahoma Ethics Commission

May 18, 2018

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about Governor Fallin vetoing Senate Bill 1212 which would have allowed anyone over the age of 21 to carry a gun without a permit while signing Senate Bill 1140 allowing private adoption agencies to deny services to anyone based on religious preferences and the newly created and funded agency which will audit state agencies and decide how they should spend their money and which services to provide.

The trio also discusses a legal challenge to the petition designed to take away the funding for raises to teachers, education support staff and state workers and the Oklahoma Ethics Commission lawsuit against the legislature over a lack of funding in the upcoming fiscal year.
