Higher gas bills, McGirt v. Oklahoma, Congressman Lucas challenger 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 Corporation Commission giving approval to Oklahoma Natural Gas to raise utility bills by nearly $8 a month for the next 25 years, the U.S. Supreme Court dismissing 32 petitions from the state to overturn its McGirt v. Oklahoma decision and the governor threatens a lawsuit against tribal leaders over money he says is owed to the state over hunting and fishing licenses.

The trio also discusses a primary challenge against Congressman Frank Lucas from Bartlesville Republican Rep. Sean Roberts and Oklahoma City Mayor David Holt choosing not to take part in debates ahead of municipal elections on Feb. 8.
