Reopening Oklahoma, Revenue Failure, New Gaming Compacts & 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 call from Governor Stitt to start reopening businesses in the state starting this week and the State Board of Equalization declares a revenue failure to fund the government through the current fiscal year, but the state faces a shortfall in the next fiscal year of $1.3B.

The trio also discusses new gaming compacts declared by Governor Stitt with the Comanche Nation and the Otoe-Missouria Tribe as well as a lawsuit against the secretary of the State Election Board about easing restrictions on notaries for mail-in ballots.
