Special Session Reporter's Roundup

In early June, the Oklahoma Supreme Court determined that the Comprehensive Lawsuit Reform Act of 2009 was unconstitutional for violating the state's single subject rule. That's the constitutional provision that requires each bill to pertain to a only one subject. The court's ruling caused Governor Fallin to call the legislature back into session to fix the problem. Here to talk about the special session, and more from the capitol, are state capitol reporters Patrick McGuigan of capitolbeat.ok; Michael Cross of KOSU Radio; and, Shawn Ashley, News Director of eCapitol.

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.
