Revenue Shortfall, Unemployment Claims, Initiative Petitions & More

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 revenue shortfall expected soon from the State of Oklahoma for the remainder of the current fiscal year, unofficial numbers show about 45,000 unemployment claims last week and Governor Stitt's emergency declaration over COVID-19 might have unintentionally killed signature gathering on initiative petitions set for the November ballot.


The trio also discusses a lawsuit against the state after Governor Stitt added abortion to the list of suspended procedures during the Coronavirus pandemic and Oklahoma is mourning the loss of former U.S. Representative and Senator Tom Coburn.
