This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about lawmakers attaching strings to a new round of executive powers to the governor, legislative leaders announce a budget deal and Republicans push through a bill requiring notarization of absentee ballots.

The trio also discusses an opinion from the attorney general saying the governor overstepped his authority in authorizing gaming compacts with two Oklahoma tribes and a federal judge puts a further delay on executions in the state.
