A group of state legislators took a look today to the State Medical Examiners Office. Results of their inspection tonight on the ONR. The state Equalization Board is told there will be slightly more money for lawmakers to spend next fiscal year but the state will still be more than a billion dollars short compared to this yearÂ’s budget. State Sen. Tom Adelson says he has found a way to bring in 100Â’s of millions of dollars to state government. The senator wants new oversight of current tax breaks and elimination of those that donÂ’t produce results. The states prescription monitoring program is getting the credit for leading to the arrest of former OSU Basketball Coach Sean Sutton.

He is calling on critics to come up with their own plan if they donÂ’t like his. The Tulsa Convention center is filled with thousands of people getting free dental care. Some people have waited in line for two days to get into the free dental clinic and more are already in line for tomorrow.
