Substitute teachers, voter registration, recreational marijuana 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 an executive order from Governor Kevin Stitt allowing state employees to apply to work as substitute teacher as schools struggle with the current omicron surge of COVID-19 and the toll the current wave is having on Oklahoma hospitals.

The trio also discusses an increase in registered voters over the past two years and an initiative petition to put recreational marijuana into statute rather than the constitution.
