Oklahoma's location at the crux of the nation's highway system makes it a prime location for human trafficking, but advocates say that technology is becoming the new avenue to lure women into bondage. U.S. Senator Tom Coburn discusses the possible government shutdown, and the attempts to defund the Affordable Care Act. The new healthcare law was the focal point of a town hall this week, where Oklahoma Watch worked to clear up confusion on the law's new online healthcare exchange. And a defunct Oklahoma City mall gets a new lease on life thanks to an influx of new business and Hispanic culture. Plus, prepping for disasters, law school enrollment, and the grand opening of KOSU's new studio on this ONR.

Pollution in Oklahoma

A fish kill in the Salt Fork of the Arkansas River in June has prompted new concerns about the environment. The Environment Protection Agency is providing half a million dollars in federal funding to pay for cleanup of contaminated sites in the state. But state government efforts and money for cleanup of 'brownfield' sites can only go so far, and the recent reporting shows the state's air, land and water are facing new threats. Joining us to discuss the latest are reporters Bob Sands of OETA and the Oklahoma News Report; Sarah Terry-Cobo of the Journal Record; and, Joe Wertz of StateImpact Oklahoma.

The new Kids Count report is out, and while Oklahoma has moved up on the list, there's still room for improvement. Another report is stirring up state legislators, as a consultant group informs the Governor's office that she should accept federal aid and expand Medicaid. But many legislators are pushing for rescuing the soon-to-expire Insure Oklahoma plan. Something perhaps beyond saving? Southwestern Oklahoma's cotton crop, as the drought continues to scorch that corner of the state. And the student loan crises grows with the spike on interest rates for Stafford loans, further hindering outgoing college students. Plus, history from the mouths of soldiers, rural firefighters, and a trip to the swimming hole, on this ONR.
