Tribal gaming compacts, State Superintendent debate, remembering Jim Halligan 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 news from KOSU about Gov. Kevin Stitt hiring outside counsel to fight a challenge to tribal gaming compacts he signed in 2020, a State Superintendent debate between Republican Secretary of Education Ryan Walters and former Teacher of the Year Jena Nelson and the couple mentioned in the Oklahoma County District Attorney debate gets arrested in Mexico.

The trio also discuss a series of legislative panels to deal with corrections reform in the coming session, and we remember former Oklahoma State University President and state lawmaker Jim Halligan who passed away earlier this week.
