Governor's Pandemic Response, Partially Privatized Medicaid, Deb Haaland & More

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel about the 9,000 correspondences to Governor Stitt from citizens and businesses regarding lockdowns at the beginning of the pandemic and the state's response to a lawsuit over its plan to purse managed Medicaid care without input from the legislature.


The trio also discusses the House Speaker moving forward with $500 million in tax cuts despite a provision in the stimulus package preventing tax cuts from states and both of Oklahoma's senators vote against the confirmation of Deb Haaland as the first Native American Secretary of the Interior despite strong support for her from Oklahoma's tribes.
