This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about State Question 793 which alters the state constitution allowing big box stores like Wal-Mart to have optometrists and eye exams and House Minority Leader Steve Kouplen reiterates his call for a special session to deal with medical marijuana especially in regard to labeling and testing guidelines.

The trio also discusses legislation from Oklahoma Senator James Lankford and a group of bipartisan U-S lawmakers to require the federal government to take better care of immigrant children in custody, the Ethics Commission again passes a rule requiring a two year delay before lawmakers can take a job as a lobbyist and former State Senator Ralph Shortey gets sentenced to 15 years for one count of child sex trafficking.
