Tempers Growing at the Capitol, House Member Faces Accusations & Time is Running Out for a Budget

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 row in a Senate committee over a gubernatorial nomination for Finance Secretary as worry grows concerning executive power over state agencies, criminal justice advocates worry about a former corrections reform opponent working on Stitt's team and the House opens an investigation against a Republican lawmakers leveled by the co-founder of the Sooner Tea Party.

The trio also discusses the refusal by a state Senator and former teacher to carry the gubernatorial candidates for State Board of Education and lawmakers have only three weeks left until the constitutionally required end of the legislative session and yet there's been no word of a final budget for the next fiscal year which starts on July 1.
