Opioid lawsuit ruling, Biden vaccine challenge, OKCPS teacher firings 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 the State Supreme Court overturning a $465M award against opioid manufacturers and the State of Oklahoma challenging the Biden Administration's order mandating vaccines or testing for private businesses with more than 100 employees, federal agencies and organizations with federal contracts including several Oklahoma universities.

The trio also discusses a chastisement by Gov. Kevin Stitt against Oklahoma City Public Schools after its board voted unanimously to fire six teachers for not following the school's masking policy and Oklahoma County Commissioner and former lawmaker Kevin Calvey announcing he is running for district attorney.
