This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and ACLU Oklahoma Executive Director Ryan Kiesel about Senate Bill 661 to temporarily alter the state's Open Meetings laws allowing public bodies to teleconference into meetings during the COVID-19 crisis and state lawmakers worry about the budget with oil prices declining as well as businesses and casinos closing to stem the spread of the corona virus.

 

The trio also discusses news of the state's public schools closing through at least April 6th and Oklahoma City and Tulsa ordering restrictions on restaurants, bars and entertainment venues in an attempt to flatten the curve on contagion.
