Oklahoma News Report


The Special Session wraps up with more than a little political wrangling and debate, and we speak with eCapitol News Director Shawn Ashley about the final week at the capitol. Reporter Bob Sands meets the retired attorney who's keeping the lawmakers honest, and answers the question: who is Jerry Fent? Local legislators work up different plans for the same goal--putting storm shelters in Oklahoma's schools. But as we learn from StateImpact's Logan Layden, many school districts aren't waiting for the legislature to make their schools safer. Plus, a look at the state's nursing home ranking, advances in brain tumor treatment, and a trip to the movies...or at least in search of a set, on this episode of the ONR.

The Special Session kicks off with state legislators working to push through a series of bills in as short a time as possible. Governor Mary Fallin makes a big announcement regarding healthcare in Oklahoma, and we get reaction from Oklahoma Watch reporter Warren Vieth. College campuses are seeing a growing trend--older students hitting the books. And the latest educational standard system is being favored by many educators, but some fear a loss of local educational control. Plus, a look at sleep apnea, experts weigh in on health at a childhood development summit, and a look at a town recovering from a tragedy, on this ONR.

Today, we look at Oklahoma's labor market, jobs and wages with Richard McPherson, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission; Mark Costello, Oklahoma Commissioner of Labor; and Dr. Kyle Dean, Associate Director of the Steven C.
