Gov. Stitt's Education Audit, Medical Marijuana Licenses, AG's McGirt Petitions and More

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's call for the State Auditor to do a comprehensive investigation of the Department of Education, the Cattlemen's Association calling on the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority to put a moratorium on new medical marijuana licenses and Attorney General John O'Connor filing two petitions with the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse last summer's decision on McGirt V. Oklahoma.

The trio also discusses an interim study on why Oklahoma businesses are failing to fill positions as the unemployment rate is one of the lowest in the nation and now back to pre-pandemic levels and Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum starts a Political Action Committee to support "Pro Tulsa" candidates for city offices.
