Gender-affirming care, critical race theory ban, OKC Human Rights Commission 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 Gov. Kevin Stitt signing a bill to give money for OU Health, but banning the use of medical treatments for minors while also calling for an all-out ban on the procedure next legislative session, lawmakers failing to get all the COVID-19 pandemic relief funding spent on projects and the Osage Nation Congress calling for a repeal of House Bill 1775 also known as the critical race theory ban.

The trio also talks about an Oklahoma City Council member appointing herself to a commission she opposed, and Stitt appointing the head of the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission to lead the embattled Tourism and Recreation Department.
