Special Session, Lankford on DACA & Bridenstine for NASA

Sep 8, 2017

This Week in Oklahoma Politics returns from the summer hiatus as KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about the call by Governor Fallin for a Special Session on September 25th after the unconstitutional ruling against the $1.50 fee per pack of cigarettes left a $215M hole in the budget, Oklahoma's junior Senator shows support for DACA after an announcement from President Trump to end the program and Congressman Jim Bridenstine gets bipartisan criticism over his appointment to head NASA.

The trio also discusses an investigation against former Oklahoma AG and now head of the EPA Scott Pruitt over trips back to the Sooner State and Oklahoma City voters are deciding on a $967M package of taxes and bonds this Tuesday.
