In this ONR, we look at Oklahoma's ongoing water wars. While the Supreme Court has handed down a ruling on the case between Oklahoma and Texas, more arguments over water are brewing, and these pit Oklahoman against Oklahoman. Water has been a huge boon to the state's wheat crop, which has experienced a huge turnaround from its previously dreary expectations due to recent rains. Oklahoma is home to more than 30 recognized tribes, and each has it's own way to determine who is or is not a member. ONR's Lis Exon explains. Plus, immigration bills and healthcare access, 50 years of the Equal Pay Act, a look at Tulsa's revived downtown and more on this ONR.

But today women still earn 70 cents for every dollar earned by a man. Joining us to discuss pay disparity and gender equality is Kristin Davis, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Women's Coalition.
