This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel about Governor Stitt coming under fire for leaving the state for a family vacation shortly before a winter storm moved is and state lawmakers learned of an extra $1.2B for the fiscal year 2022 budget.

 

The trio also discusses a pending lawsuit from health organizations against the Oklahoma Health Care Authority over its plan to move forward with partially privatized Medicaid and Tulsa-based MyHealth is appealing the denial to its bid to run the state's health information exchange.
