Grocery tax cut, gender affirming care, new polling 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 a call by Gov. Kevin Stitt for lawmakers to eliminate the grocery sales tax during special session, a push by Republican legislators to withhold funding to OU Health if the money is going to go to gender-affirming care and a new poll showing a narrow lead by Stitt over Joy Hofmeister, and a lead by Democratic candidate Jena Nelson over Republican Ryan Walters in the race for Superintendent.

The trio also discusses an increase in open records requests to the Tulsa Election Board for voting records from the 2020 general election and the concern by the same election board about getting pollsters who fear harassment.
