Vaccination waiver denied, new Oklahoma County jail considered, executions pending 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 U.S. Secretary of Defense denying a request from Gov. Kevin Stitt of a COVID-19 vaccination waiver and a federal judge putting an injunction against vaccine mandates against health care workers in facilities receiving Medicaid and Medicare funding.

The trio also discusses the approval of a new Oklahoma County jail by the Oklahoma County Jail Trust, and the Pardon and Parole Board denying clemency requests for two men on death row less than two weeks after approving another over concerns of the state's execution protocols.
