2-15-13

On this ONR, worker's comp reform has become a key part of republican lawmaker's agenda this session, which could lead to major changes for Oklahoma workers. Also on legislators' agenda: curbing the high number of Oklahomans driving without insurance. Good childcare is a conundrum for families across the state, but some parents find themselves in a gap--earning too much to receive assistance, and too little to afford childcare on their own. It's a problem hitting not just families, but childcare centers as well. And an agency out to clean up the state's defunct drilling sites. Plus, towns get 'Entrepreneur Ready,' stitching together love for veterans, and local poets break down the spirit behind the pen--or, the laptop, on this ONR.

Oklahoma News Report

In this episode of the ONR, the Oklahoma legislative session kicks off with Governor Mary Fallin's State of the State address. We bring you excerpts of her speech and reactions to her agenda from the lawmakers at 23rd and Lincoln. One item on many lawmakers' minds is the crumbling capitol, but Bob Sands uncovers a swath of ignored infrastructure problems across the state. Then, the nation and the state struggle to support a growing elderly population. And for years, the ethnic makeup of Oklahoma's prison system has went unchanged, and remains skewed towards minorities. Plus, business news, art at the state capitol, and a conversation with one of Colin Powell's former aides on this ONR.
