Congress is in recess, but legislators aren't going out to play. U.S. representatives and senators, like Oklahoma's Tom Coburn, are criss-crossing their respective states, talking to constituents. We spoke with Senator Coburn about what he's hearing from people as he travels the state, and the projects Congress needs to tackle when legislators return to Washington.

An interim study is pointing its spyglass at the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the picture being magnified is grim: a clandestine agency with little to no oversight taking care of some of our state's bravest and best. But there is one vision of hope coming out of this study--change, both on the horizon and currently occurring within the agency.

From the oilfield to the construction yard to the backyard, people everywhere are seeing copper thefts on the rise--a fact confirmed by recent report from the National Insurance Crime Bureau. But one Oklahoma businessman has developed a foolproof--or perhaps thief-proof--way to cut down on copper theft, and perhaps save a few lives in the process.

The city of Miami just lost one of its major employers, Blitz USA. The company, which produced those familiar red plastic gasoline containers, employed over a hundred people in this far northeastern Oklahoma town. The impact on Blitz's former employees is immediate, but the impact on Miami--and Oklahoma as a whole--remains to be seen, as the former workers begin to look for new jobs, which they require them to leave the state.

On this week's ONR, schools across the country are growing more diverse, and it's causing unique problems for some Oklahoma educators. Clean energy abounds in the Sooner state, or it's trying to. Lawmakers and leaders continue to push for compressed natural gas vehicles, and while Oklahoma is eighth in the country for wind energy production, the loss of a tax credit could leave a booming industry blowing in the wind. Out of the ashes of the state's recent wildfires, communities come together to help students left homeless from the flames, and one program is helping rural residents better fireproof vulnerable houses. Plus, a trip to Tulsa's historic Greenwood District, an exploration of a tribe's history, and a look at the high-flying women of the Museum of the 99's on this ONR.

StateImpact: Wind Energy

Featured in Top Stories

While local government pushes for CNG, another Oklahoma energy industry looks to be left blowing in the wind. A federal wind production tax credit is set to expire, and it's causing a lot of concern among wind energy producers, enough that the fear of losing that tax credit is already causing ripples in the state's economy. We speak to StateImpact's Joe Wertz, who has been following this development in one of Oklahoma's largest industries.
