Affordable Care Act

Featured in Top Stories

June 28th saw the arrival of the much-anticipated Supreme Court ruling on the affordable health care act, commonly dubbed 'Obamacare.' The high court voted in favor of the controversial bill to either the chagrin or joy of people across the country. In Oklahoma, it was certainly more of the former, as lawmakers had held off on creating a healthcare exchange in compliance with the law, figuring it would be overturned. Now with the law moving forward, state legislators must figure out where Oklahoma goes from here in the land of health care.

The Supreme Court upheld most of the affordable health care act this week, but the repercussions will be rolling out for weeks to come, as many states--including Oklahoma--have not yet moved to comply with the law. We speak with experts about the law and what it means. This week also saw the primary election occur on Tuesday night, and Steve Bennett looks at who was elected, who wasn't, and what that means for Oklahoma politics. We also explore underage drinking, and the programs enacted by the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services that are making an impact. OSU is training a different kind of doctor, and we get our hands on some noodling action, on this episode of the ONR.

Sovereign nations often bring to mind distant countries, but usually forgotten that Oklahoma hosts over three dozen of them--the Native American tribes. At the annual Sovereignty Symposium last week, United States Representative Tom Cole spoke about the historical struggle to maintain sovereignty, and the importance of self-governance.

From 2000 to 2010, the Hispanic population doubled in Oklahoma, making it the major minority in the state. They also became a force in the economy, owning over 7,000 businesses and bringing billions of dollars in revenue to the state. With a primary election a handful of days away and November rapidly approaching, it's a demographic neither party can afford to ignore.

A battle is being fought right now--in courthouses, inside state agencies, at the halls of the legislature--over one of Oklahoma's most precious commodities. Water. It's the question of who gets it and how much, and it seems like the only thing every party can agree upon over this resource is that they can't agree.
