Utility Bill Increases, Second Emergency Declaration, Tulsa and OK County Health Departments & More


This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel about state officials calming fears of skyrocketing utility bills after last week's winter weather, President Biden approving a second emergency declaration on clean up from the storms and a bill to give the State Health Department more control of the Oklahoma and Tulsa County Health Departments.


The trio also discusses a measure by Republican lawmakers to declare any President Biden executive actions as unconstitutional and the Cherokee Supreme Court striking the words 'by blood" from the tribes constitution and laws.
