Teacher Walkout Nears, Nitrogen Gas Executions & Medical Marijuana

Mar 16, 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 a two week deadline for lawmakers to come up with funding for pay raises for teachers and state workers or face a walkout by both groups and an announcement by the state Attorney General and Director of the Department of Corrections that Oklahoma will soon be using nitrogen gas to execute people on death row.

The trio also discusses the possible concerns by Oklahoma's GOP about a recent special election in Pennsylvania, which is switching a Congressional seat from Republican to Democratic and a controversial medical marijuana bill fails in the State Senate.
