Legislative Leaders: Oklahoma House of Representatives

The last few days have been quiet on the floors of the Oklahoma House and Senate - with only a few bills heard in both chambers. But, with less than two months left in the first regular session of the 54th Oklahoma Legislature, the sausage-making that is the legislative process grinds on. Joining us to discuss the latest at the capitol are leaders from the state House of Representatives. House Minority Leader Scott Inman, democrat from Del City. And Speaker Pro Tem Mike Jackson, republican from Enid, filling in for Speaker of the House T.W. Shannon, who was originally scheduled to be on the program but was unable to make it.

It's a problem we discuss today with our guests: Tim Hock, gang unit detective for the Oklahoma City Police Department and President of the Oklahoma Gang Investigators Association; Sheriff Rob Seale of Poteau and Southeast Regional Director for the Oklahoma Gang Investigators Association; and, from our Tulsa studio, Sergeant Sean Larkin, member of the Organized Gangs Unit for the Tulsa Police Department.

Oklahoma's 2013 Economic Outlook

By most accounts, Oklahoma had a strong year in 2012, economically, ranked in the top ten of all states for overall growth rate and increases in jobs. Gross state revenues went up, unemployment went down. And congress avoided a potentially devastating start to the year, after flirting with going off the so-called fiscal cliff. Joining us to discuss what to expect from Oklahoma's economy this year are Deidre Myers, Director of Research and Economic Analysis at the Oklahoma Department of Commerce; Jonathan Willner, Chair of the Economics and Finance Department and economics professor at the Oklahoma City University Meinders School of Business; and, Chad Wilkerson, Vice President, economist and branch executive with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Oklahoma City Branch.

Diversity in Oklahoma

Oklahoma is one of the most ethnically and racially diverse states in the U.S.; not just one group, but a combination of many. American Indians, African Americans, Asian and Pacific Islanders, and Latinos comprise one-fourth of the state's population. And that segment is getting larger - 47% of Oklahoma public school students are non-white. So today, we discuss diversity and Oklahoma's growing minorities, with our guests: Colonel Stan Evans, former Dean of Dtudents at the OU College of Law and former member of the Oklahoma Human Rights Commission; Jana Lewis Harkins, advocate for African-American and women's rights; Ruben Aragon, President and CEO of the Latino Community Development Agency; and Sarah Adams-Cornell, Native American advocate and member of the Oklahoma City Choctaw Tribal Alliance.
