KOSU Hosts Preview of the Legislative Session

As lawmakers return to Oklahoma City next month, they face some interesting challenges. Early estimates indicate they’ll have more money to spend than they have had in several years. So, does this mean it’s time for the tax cut the governor promised last year? Is it time to give raises to teachers and state employees? Should we catch up on some infrastructure expenses the state delayed in leaner budget times?
