"Changed which is not something that there was really a mechanism to do and in december of two thousand eighteen governor fallon. Her term ended in her last days of office. She she pardon parole board recommended. I think about about thirty people representing about four hundred and fifty or maybe five hundred years of imprisonment and she granite commutations to all of them. We were able to work with private funders to give them like transportation home and help them get back on their feet and there was a signing ceremony at the state capital Tried which you know. It was really remarkable day and life changing day for me and then there's like wait a minute. We got thirty people out and to get down to national average there was about. I think thirty nine thousand people in oklahoma prisons or under department corrections control that time we would have had to get out of the average which again is like the worst in the country. Dishes is the world's we probably have about thirteen thousand people on president. And so it's like well okay. I think it's twenty. That's eight thirty nine or twenty twenty nine thousand. We've got about thirteen thousand people out so we have some work to do. And so we started doing work and legislatively a lot of the people who were arguing or advocated criminally or form. Were able to pitch the use of commutation as a mechanism for decoloration. I think it actually came up gubernatorial. Debate and governor Said that he would be in favor of it. There was some concern that he was just saying that because his opponent also said that and it turns out when he got into office. He was really serious about it. They've done a lot legislatively and through the executive branch to to get people out of prison for drug property crimes and there are a lot of people who have serving only sentences. Now that would be misdemeanors that they have been charged with those same crimes now but it's undeniable the work that we've we've done that has been done and.

"A long ways to improving the quality of life or segment of society that often has not received the opportunities that they need to to arrive and grow. The i'm confident. We've got some good leaders out there. Even on both sides of the aisle who recognize that some of these issues need to change and they're working towards those but we are always going to have that opposition and we can let a loud vocal minority. Make the difference in these decisions too often. That is the case of the catholic. And i'm just going to japan. Like i think too often that vocal that side of the discussion brushes theft off as this person's problem you know bootstraps kind of rhetoric in. I mean the is it just blows my mind you know like if we just look at our kids in what we do to help our kids you know like bad has kind of. I think a metaphor for society. Like someone's always appearance. Someone's always a kid you know and you have to help those people along and To think that you know these individuals are just the idea that people are poor by choice or sick by choice or not. Feeding their families by choice is just it. It blows my mind if you don't connect that then to our justice involved in whatever the fines and fees and all that landscape that they're having to navigate if they're not just as in the justice involves You know what are the other health issues are they mired in debt and health issues in there for they can't hold it full. I mean just all this interconnections between why people have a hard time operating in a healthy way in its in its generational and so the fact that we so easily dismiss it as this is this individuals problem versus you know what are the wrap arounds procedures that we can do to kind of cut those chords with those. You know. negative social determinants of health. So yes i mean. it's just the rhetoric of. That's not my problem no i. It's our problem because the more people that needs you know the social safety net the more requires of us even if we don't see it and so So that's why let's turn to then. Who is doing the good work specifically for our kids at the capital Really to kind of tackle these larger issues that really keep oklahoma from being happy healthy adults a one of the things. I wanna brag about the team. We've got with ca a course. I took this project over five years ago of institute We've been around since nineteen ninety-three an an roberts's recognized as the most known director at. Oh i see. She served there for twenty years and she did a tremendous job of moving things through the legislature like the fit kids coalition working on legislation to improve the fitness of kids and the healthier options in vending machines and to do while this year. We got one of ants Issues that she worked on for years past to try and do a health course in schools and so we went through the legislature this year and was just ecstatic. That finally made it through and we did have makers just really wanted to see that happen and it was authored by some republican lawmakers at recognized some of these changes have to happen or else were going to continue to see these problems like the numbers of what we haven't kids out. It's going to continue. And so we do have lawmakers out there. That are vitally recognizing we do have to make some of these changes one of the programs that we helped get passed. A few years ago was creating a task force to look at trauma informed care and adverse jim. It was a three year task force. There culminating their work this year. And i sat down with governor fallon person who iran against for governor and inner last year her husband approached me and the first gentleman wade christianson. It learned about at a spouse's conference in wisconsin. And it really piqued his curiosity and the discussion was air about how this is impacting the young people and then as they become adults they entire society of us died and so i ran into him at a meeting. Pulled me aside. Asked me what i knew about it. Because he knew. I worked in that area and we started a genuine dialogue about that. And then wade. And i talk to mary about it. And she was opposed to task forces throughout her entire term but she agreed to sign that went into law and create that three year task force. And i've told her that's going to be one of the things that people are going to positively remember. Her four is tackling that the very first thing so whether you agree or disagree with people wholeheartedly. They're probably going to be some points where you're going to find that common ground and mary did have a heart for children. She did a lot of foster kids during her administration and then network where dj actually trusted the guy that ran against her shoots. Get that through. i'm very appreciative of we've seen sarah stick. The first lady has had a heart for child trauma what she went through as a child. So it's building those bridges and finding common ground with people who may not normally Agree with on most issues but finding the way you can take the politics out of kids issues and getting a makers in those elected officials to do some good speaking favorably about one person that i a lot of people on the left. Don't like is mark wayne molin. But a lot of people don't know he's the chair of the the foster a caucus in congress they they've foster kids themselves and he worked hard to get some of the issues through on the chafee funding. And we got a sizable amount of money. The game to the state to increase the ages for qualification for these kids to draw benefits for a longer period of time and have that smoother transition out of the foster system as they age out and so just trying to work as i said to take the politics out kids issues find common ground and worked to get some of these things through now. Obviously they're going to be a lot of issues where you won't find agreement we. It took us a lot of years to get the. It back in place did it. This year it was tied in with a tax cut and certainly debate the points on the good bad on that but we were happy to finally c. e. i. t. c. refundability but back into law. And we're just gotta keep struggling fighting in raising awareness showing the data in the facts. And that's what we do at the capitalist trying present The issues in a factual way for lawmakers to hopefully make the best decision. And we've got a lot of organizations out there that are doing the same all throughout the state we work with organizations to keep them aware of what's going on the capital so they can get involved Arkansas says one of those. It's been working very hard to make sure that we provide opportunities for those. On the medicaid waiver list the disabilities. Dds st list We've got programs. If you name the issue i could probably name three or four nonprofits. They're working in different aspects. That are trying to overcome these advice. And we've got some very staunch supporters out there working to better the lives of kids a i'm optimistic everyday even facing the numbers what we see in the bat statistics. I'm confident that we have a lot of people out there. Working doing their best to try and make it better and we will make it better sunday. One of the hurdles. That seems to me that you face is in that political discussion Is convincing a sizable segment of the legislature. That we have today. That government can do good things that government has a role to play in immediate cases. That government is the best resource to use to bring some of these things together. And instead you sort of get big footed by those who know the cost of everything in the value of nothing. It seems like to me. So how do you. How do you convince folks who are absolutely convinced. You know by. Ronald reagan's whole you know thing. What was the nine series words in english. Language are drawn from the government. And i'm here to help. How do you convince folks who who must become a guiding principle after. Show the dab show where the programs are working or generally the research has been done within the agencies to show the benefit of what is going out through those tax dollars and being put back into the community we just have to make sure that that message is compelling enough for those lawmakers and and look at our grading system that we did this year. We we do report card every year for lawmakers grading Who has the best record for child. Advocacy jacob rosecrans down. Norman had the only perfect score we had at the legislature there were six that came in the next ranking and then eighteen beneath that so twenty five hundred forty nine at a pretty high score with a and so we were thankful that those bills were authored and passed that the efforts were made The leadership not only pass some good bills but also stop some bad ones now. Some bad ones made it through to we negatively graded those but it's showing those lawmakers. What's working in other states. There may be a good idea that comes from state to the south of us. Or maybe one on the coast and show how it can translate into a benefit oklahoma one good example We're trying to get something worked out with oklahoma healthcare authority to allow for the acis test to be administered in. The well child visits in the pediatric visits. If we can ask those kids those ten questions about where they rank if they're facing any of those issues. That's going to go a long way to doing preventative care and helping out and hopefully avoiding something down the road or long-term in improving the life of that child. I getting the resources out into the community to make sure that the opportunities are there other the On my gosh you'll have to help me out. It was the Refunding it was passed rule. Economic action program That money into the different communities to help cities with infrastructure to improve water lines. So you'll have clean water to drink to improve a roads to make sure the roads are safe when you're driving down them on. We have to look at that investment in infrastructure. We're hearing a lot of talk about it at the federal level and we fully support that opportunity not only get the the infrastructure built up for the things that you can see the tangible items but also putting those programs in place that will build up those jobs and provide opportunities for families and so we're certainly hoping to see more things come about through the federal level but also we want to make sure our oklahoma lawmakers also continue that investment in the community. And help out. And we've all got to do our part to make sure that they understand on the cost benefit analysis if they're gonna break it down to that that the benefit far outweighs what the cost will be. It seems like at the end of the day that you look at the core here a lot of what we're talking about in terms of trial where welfare goes back poverty in this state. And you know obviously what it costs to live in oklahoma city or tulsa baby different than it is broken. Bow or or you know the rush springs or or wherever such a few years ago. Put a stop prevented communities from deciding for themselves for example whether or not to raise the minimum wage and tying the hands of municipalities and local governments to take some steps that they thought were necessary to help get families to a better position. His marianne noted you know when you've got families that are you know that are worried about keeping the roof over the head or food on the table or how they're going to pay massive medical bills or keep the jalopy running. You know. i mean it's a that's the kind of thing that seems to me. The core help lift oklahoma family's in relieve a lot of that burden improve the childhood hood experiences for kids across oklahoma run. That's exactly right and you look at. What the tribes has done as far as the investment rising their own minimum wage. They have hired away people from other jobs and the government needs to recognize that when we're trapped at seven twenty five an hour and we don't have that opportunity to increase the minimum wage and provide other opportunities. And you're always gonna have the argument about the impact but there's no question we can look at the the prices of what people pay for items these days compared to twenty or thirty years ago and where the wages ever stagnant. It's made it a greater divide on that that gauge of wealth between low income middle income and high income or seeing fewer and fewer people in that middle income range. And we've got to do our part to make sure if those opportunities over there on the state government compliance often about the federal government passing laws down on them. I would remind the state government that they should not do the same when it comes to municipalities let those municipalities. Make those decisions. What's best for the people that they represent and stay out of the business of local government. We wish they would stay out of the business of local government to keep.

"And podcasts, All in one discover a new podcast from our library of over 350,000 titles. Here's an I. Heart Radio Podcast preview On September 16th 1961, Betty and Barney Hill cut their vacation short and decided to drive home. They were having difficulty finding their way around the city and Barney decided he just wanted to drive home. No That they would arrive at their home on New Hampshire seacoast at about two o'clock in the morning. What they saw that night in the New Hampshire sky would change everything. I began walking across the highway looking not the object with binoculars, putting them down thinking my mother can't be. Oh, I don't believe it a light in the sky. At first she thought of a falling star, but she realized that falling stars don't fall upwards, and that's what this one was doing two years. Her and the prize for 1000. Lee Mathews County, okay dot com Wait is almost here. This's just a little preview, and I don't love you, but I honestly can't wait till we get through all this debating and election stuff. I mean, it's just it's wearing out my soul. For a 1000 Leigh Matthews, Katie okay dot com. Sounds like it's wearing out your soul as well. Rob right on Social media highly try, decided to catch the fine point references that Kendra Horn ads against Stephanie Bice. When a negative claim is made, and they are quick and not easy to do. But one current ad on TV right now has to do with bys voting for a bill that allowed pay dent lender payday lenders to charge 200% per year. H B 1913, which was signed in AA AA and 19 in 2017. I think it also claims bys took money from payday lenders. I've never done this before and found it easy actually, to find the bill on the House website. I didn't read the entire bill but research the bill and found the following language. A licensee may only charge and collect a periodic interest rate not to exceed 17% per month unless otherwise provided by this title. If you multiply 17 by 12 you get 200 for I guess that's where they got the number. They make it sound so bad. I have three. You are elves below on the bill. One page of votes. It showed 59 years, 39 days and a few others. So she's not the on ly one who voted for it. And if and if I did, and if she did, I don't know her reasons. And remember, I'm a novice at this, but the list of names I didn't C bist listed at all. And it's probably one of those rat holes that you don't want to go down by even acknowledging or defending. She's defended her position on supporting teachers, and that's probably worth doing it well. She did support teachers. And the attacks on her are completely unfounded and basically made up against teachers. She voted for a teacher pay raise, not against it. Okay. In any case, Rob goes on to say, Don't worry. I'm voting for Stephanie Vice. My purpose here was to see if I could easily find something on this point to call Bravo, Sierra on it. And it looks as though it didn't take you long Rob to do just that. There's the old Bravo Sierra buzzer by the way, and I'm hoping that other people will do the same and use this example of distortion by horns ads. I haven't accomplished that yet with this particular point. If you have any counterpoints to this or any of horns, negative and content, I would appreciate you sharing P s another one, I noted, but haven't researched yet is H b 20 to 42 back in 2015. I forget the negative point on that one. Other than that it was something by supposedly voted for and tried to tie and tried to tie to Fallon. As if we all hated Mary Fallon didn't find vices Name on that vote tally on that one, either. PPS. If I'm reading things correctly on 1913 Governor Fallon vetoed it. Thanks. Rob Mitchell. Yes, Rob, And that's just an example of what I've been saying. All along. In this day and age. The corporate media world is not enough. The corporate media world cannot monopolize information like they used to people like you can tap a few keystrokes into a computer and check Everything quickly and efficiently. Thanks for writing in Robin NewsRadio. 1000. Katie. Okay, you are on the air height. I'm talking to you. Okay? Once again, no time to chat. Off the air. Or in the break. So if you're calling to do that, I'm afraid I can't help you. But this is a radio show. So when u Call, make sure you understand You're probably going to be on the air. NewsRadio 1000 Katie. Okay like you. You're on the air high. Haley. How's it going? Good, sir. Go ahead. I got a question. My friends and I in our little group here, have a Well, you don't understand something about Stephanie Bisys campaign ads. Okay, Andi, I'm not her campaign manager, and I don't know, But let me see what I can find. Let me see what I can try. This is somebody was maybe some political insight. Nowhere in any of her ads to XI state. The fact the Kendra Horn voted to impeach President Trump Correct She should be like she should be. There should be a 32nd ad that says that in order to impeach she voted to impeach because that was the straw that broke the camel's back. In our opinion with Kendra Horn? Yes. Now that was the end of her career right there. That was the end of her career for a lot of people, But I think what Stephanie Bisys campaign is trying to focus on is the relevance of Kendra Horn voting with Nancy Pelosi, 90% of the time. Ah, and that that should be brought up to be forced into that impeachment vote. Pelosi and her group through Kendra Horn under the bus, knowing From where her district Wass force the impeachment is. Yes, Yes, OK, In my opinion, Aah! Pelosi Sacrifice Kendra Horn. Well, I also think that Pelosi I mean, there's another thing that's not being talked about that The Nancy Pelosi wrote a personal check to Kendra Horn's campaign for $2000. So that was probably the Here you go. I promised you I'd take care of you There. It issue helped him a vote. Ah, you helped me on the repeal of Obamacare and and you helped me on the impeachment. Now here's your payback..

"I've been given a mandate by the people to do these things of that. Raines solid until you begin to think about it from a legislative point of view and I think many of them didn't They didn't want to cross him early So they acquiesced an enormous amount for not very much in trade of controlling four five major agencies a few legislators like the budget chief in the Senate kind of perked up and said wait. Wait a minute. I talked to him the other day as a matter of fact he's he's very concerned about this new methodology of how agencies display their budgets to legislators You know they kind of have to jump through the hoops with the Governor's office the Finance folks Before they reveal the real secrets about what they need and want and some of them are so anxious to please the man on the second floor. They've gone in and said I think it was the health department. Even though we have a number of counties without a health department I would like to cut my budget That doesn't strike me as smart services to the public but That's kind of the past. So it's those two things term limits plus a philosophy that Quicker smaller government is bad. Let's go home so I would ask though this idea of small government I I'd really like to kind of signal. Boosts this notion that what he's doing is actually a paragraph. It's not Shrinking government and he stood way shape or form. He's brought in a number of out of state contractors and vendors to do the the role of people that had at once existed. You know at state agency so I mean he's not eliminating the need or the services that existed. He's just moving things around in a sense but it's all his he's he's the final. Say what I feel like is happening. We've seen this drill before. I'll give you a firm example. You may recall that Again Governor Keating in his zeal for privatization decided to abolish these part of the State Department of Transportation that did the maintenance along highways interstate highways and he found a firm in Pennsylvania. There was GonNa do it cheaper better and faster and got his appointee to the Department of transportation a former legislator by the name of Herschel Crow to to sell the proposal and You know in the name of saving money downsizing and they tried that for a little. While became very unhappy with services. The money went back to Pennsylvania that was paid. It didn't stay here and that quickly faded away. So yes you're exactly right. It's kind of moving the deck chairs around and designating a new name or and a new structure or office in the new building or whatever. It's easy to look at the past but we wanted to know what it was like on the ground and the legislature now governor stood as he moves to consolidate power in the governor's office and tries to enact his agenda. We talked with minority leader representative. Emily Virgin who started her? Time representing House district forty four. When Governor Mary Fallon started her eight years in office so verging can tell us how has been done. And how the governor's office has operated in the past but also what makes governor different? I've had some pretty different experiences but being not I came in at the same time as governor Fallon I saw her entire administration and saw it change a little bit but there were some constants and I think one of the constants was that her office didn't really interact with the legislature a whole lot and that probably lent itself to some of the dysfunction that we saw I think when she was in office and at the end of her term. I think that was changed a little bit. But she also took a more adversarial tactic with the legislature. You saw her veto several pretty controversial bill. She vetoed the permanent Kerry Bill. That was passed before The one that governor still find so you know she. She was an interesting in in looking and looking back at things. She's a really interesting case. Study I think the way that she changed in the course of the eight years that she was in office because she did enact some pretty conservative tax policy following the Kansas model and But then reversed some of that and realized. I think the error of her ways in cutting funding for things and so she left office with a budget surplus and she left with a teacher pay raise and she left after cutting legislator salaries and so that was that was sort of part of the adversarial relationship. I think that she had with the legislature. Was You know her appointees on the Legislative Compensation Board? She was pushing them to caught our salaries and so they did that. The most recent legislative compensation board meeting they decided to increase our salaries. So you know I think legislators light governor stood a little more because he Was was instrumental in making that happen. And it's not something that's popular talk about. But you know you want your legislators to be paid well enough so that regular folks can afford to do it then. Governor stit has come in and I think at the beginning of his administration he did out to legislators across the aisle and I think every House Democrat and I assume every Senate Democrat. Went to breakfast at the governor's mansion and sort of just had a getting to know you sort of breakfast event and that was pretty early on his term and we appreciated that and. I think it's important for us to have those personal relationships because that helps when you're thinking about crafting legislation but also it helps with sort of the tone and the civil discourse when you actually know the people that you're working with and the people that you are potentially talking bad about I think it really helps us be more productive. So I was encouraged by that and then there really wasn't a whole lot after that So I think he came in with good intentions and then of course probably got busy with the things that you have to do as governor but what we've seen is that he has sort of realized and I think this is what happens when you have someone who comes in as a total outsider. And somebody who I think he would admit hasn't been involved in state government at all really before this and some people might think that's good some people may think that's bad. You can have whatever opinion you want on that. But I think that he came in and was surprised by a lot of things and now he's trying to change those things because he thinks that dobbs not the way that they should be so. You're seeing a lot of him bringing this privacy. Oh mentality to state government until the governor's office because I think as a as someone who was running a company he was able to make big changes unilaterally and I think he's been frustrated that he hasn't been able to do that by himself but that sort of the way the government is supposed to work for. The governor is elected by the voters of the state. But the reason why you want more voices involved is because there are other elected officials who are closer to the people so the House of Representatives because we run every two years. We have the smallest district. We're the ones who are probably most in tune with what the citizens want at least from our legislative districts and it's important to have that voice in there but also balanced out by the Senate who's not up for re election all the time So they can be a little bit more deliberative. And then the governor who sort of is is the executive but is probably the furthest away from the actual citizens and voters and and what they're thinking and feeling because the governor has just one person and they represent three million people for a million people. Whatever it is now and so it's it's a balance that works well for us because you have people who are elected who are really close to the people and you have elected who are a little bit further awake and can take a a ten thousand foot view rather than our one thousand foot view and so that's a good balance but also because You know it should be hard to change things in government because you don't want things going back and forth all the time you want some consistency because people who depend on government services need consistency and so that's a big part of why state government I think should be. It should be pretty hard to change things and state government because we have a lot of people who depend upon what we do as a state and those services that we provide and they need to know that those services.

"Whereas. Laurent brother will we create a man, thanks a lot. And now in segment to focus on Oklahoma. Jack Elliott speaks with Joe Dorman from the Oklahoma institute for child advocacy about how oh I see. With the state legislature that child abuse, which is a program going out of the state capital today. You say a lighter out because it's spring break. I guess a lot of the. Legislative body probably have family members that are out of school. So they travel as well and to take off. So it's a pretty mellow time at the state capital right now it is. And they had Newell. I will say in normal times they have a really rough for six weeks because they're were usually a lot of hard feelings a lot of partisan battles. Sometimes the budget is really tough. But I was actually it was with the speaker of the house Charles McCall yesterday. And we're talking about how mellow it's been and how well everyone's getting along partly because of a little bit better budget. But I think also partly because of so many new lawmakers Forty-six freshmen in the house twelve freshmen in the Senate. So you've got almost half of the house and one quarter of the Senate of brand new and you have a new governor. And everyone's getting along great right now, even cross party lines are working. Well, really? Well, very good. I noticed on the front page of the paper this morning. They're talking about, you know, there's always ways to finagle and find a way to. Point out anything that they may. People may find things just not always perfect, and they say the governor Stitz. Administration is sort of not very diverse. I think that's the way they put it. Yeah. And I was actually just reading the story while we were off air about his appointments to the healthcare authority. I they're they're going to have to start appointing. Some people who are across the spectrum. You've got a lot of recognizable names. He's reappointing. A lot of the people who have served on there in the past from different administrations, not just the previous administration. But even once before that, but I know they're trying to shake things up. The cabinet is really shaking things up the individual that he brought on to be the cabinet secretary. For health was a person that worked over Chesapeake solving problems. So the model he's using isn't necessarily looking at the mission of the agency. He's looking to find individuals who are used to going out and solving challenges. And so I'm certainly hoping the things like that will work I had the opportunity to work with a lot of the cabinet secretaries and the. Passed and get to meet some of the new ones, and I'm still really optimistic. We're to see some good things happen. That's good stuff. You know, I've always thought to sometimes will, you know, we all believe in diversity. It's a terrific thing. But sometimes will something such as diversity 'cause you maybe do appoint someone in a position that would be better suited for someone else. But because of the diversity issue you're trying to accommodate that as opposed to maybe the the overall concern of the position and the person taking the position. Absolutely. And you have diversity. It comes in all different shapes and sizes, and you do have to have those different perspectives on it. They really do need to find individuals who have experienced a lot of the challenges faced by the mission of that entity. Were there appointing and put people in place have seen some of those problems and hopefully can recommend some good solutions. It's not bad. Yes. I think on I think overall everybody I'm saying people I've talked to both Republican Democratic independent. They all feel like governor Stitz doing a really good job so far so far have been very happy. In fact, the first lady is doing an event for oh, I see a in Tulsa on the twenty eighth. We're going to show. Oh, the resilience film. This is a film that the Potts family foundation has the rights to show in Oklahoma. It's a movie it talks about adverse childhood experiences. The history of the study of aces and how that impacts children. And then as they go into adulthood, the health concerns that follow them, and we're gonna do this showing at the circle cinema and Tulsa on the twenty eighth, and we just had to actually move to their largest theater. We've had such a tremendous response in just the first few days of announcing it it's going to be a free showing of the film. So if anybody wants to drive up the turnpike, come see it, you can go to oh, I see dot org and register for and what's the name of the movie again, the film resilience resilience one hour documentary, and we're going to follow up with a one hour panel discussion with several individuals who are experts in the field and me. Well, there you go now. We're talking to Joe Dorman, by the way with Elisa. Have you seen the film already? I I've seen it a couple of times. It's a fantastic film. It's almost like that that veil is lifted where you see. Yeah. That makes sense that explains why Oklahoma has so many health problems why we see the highest incarceration rate, especially for females. Why we see food deserts why we see an underinsured and uninsured population. Why we see the education issues we have the health concerns the heart conditions. Everything makes sense when you look at that childhood trauma that these kids have experienced and Oklahoma's number one in the nation for multiple adverse childhood experiences. This is a study of ten different things with child abuse and neglect. And when you look at the study, Oklahoma's number one in the nation for four or more aces and explains all of those problems that we have and we're we've been bringing this awareness to lawmakers we have a task force. It's meeting was created by governor Fallon, and we have a Bill going through to enhance this. Task force this year with appointments from the state administration. I really feel like this task force has the opportunity to make recommendations to solve a lot of the problems we face in Oklahoma. So that's what the task force is all about once they identify the problem, then they can go in and do whatever they can maybe fix some of these problems. That's exactly right. Wow. I didn't realize what Oklahoma was in such a sad state of affairs. So to speak. You know, looking at what you're talking about with the health condition. I mean, I guess I was aware of the health issues when you look at the the numbers that come out all the time regarding heart disease and lung disease, and that sort of thing cancer and so forth. And I'm sure it has a lot to do within like you're talking about this film, probably shows and highlights the fact that it probably has a lot to do with eating habits smoking and just lifestyle overall. That's it. Yeah. That's a I r calendar though, I see a.

"Bills were signed today that may solve a bunch of problems with our state. I think that whereas a lot of people are not happy with the governor having so much power to fire certain heads of departments. I think there needs to be a little more accountability that needs to go directly to the governor's office. I think that's one of our problems as a state, I think too many administrators of certain departments get into that. And it's a cushy gig. And nobody's paying attention to what you're doing and you can either serve your own interests or you can serve the interests of your friends. And at some point if the governor notices that you're doing something that they disapprove of. They should be able to call to call you on the carpet on it. And those were signed into law today, by the way. So the governor will have more opportunity to have more power when it comes to firing or overseeing who's in charge of some of these departments. I'm I'm all for the wind has been blowing us all around all day today. I don't know if you can hear it on your radio. But every now and then you'll hear a creaking sound behind me. That's my building. I'm on the eleventh floor the Matthews office building. And so as the building moves back and forth with that southerly wind that's been gusting up to seventy miles an hour. It's it's a little unnerving every now, and then the kind of feel the building move, and it creeks, and we actually get a little swaying action from our blinds on our Venetian blinds on the window so drive carefully in it. If you are northbound, you'll have it behind you. So that won't blow your around as much if you're southbound you're going to be right into it. So it'll it'll blow your around quite a bit, hyper. Profile vehicles. Probably the most effective and other news that happened today. A Bill that gives former teachers and incentive to head back to the classroom passed the house of representatives. There's no secret at all that Oklahoma's in the midst of a teacher shortage, and according to a twenty eighteen report, the number of Oklahoma educators, leaving the profession increased the past six years by almost thirty thousand in December the Oklahoma state school boards association said nearly five thousand more teachers were needed across Oklahoma to match every student teacher ratio in the region. Last session governor Fallon, then governor Fallon signed a Bill that raised teacher salaries and added fifty million to the education funding, which by the way for me. I wasn't a big fan of that. Because.

"A second ago that I like it kind of put a different perspective. I imagine that. There's so many different things up here to work on that you have to prioritize. But you've got to really do some task management, and like you say tackle this one. And then we move out of that one. And then we move onto that one. Yeah. Because if you juggle too many, it's just a mess. It is you know, we're put on a certain committees. So we all have three committees that we focus our talents on and so mine is education, and then she judicial and then I'm also on appropriations. So, you know, I I am I'm having to truly compartmentalize every little thing. So I you know, what I'm not going to be an expert in roads and bridges because that's not a committee. I'm on. But. The judicial issues. I mean, I'm digging into those. And so you do you become very good at compartmentalizing everything and nobody can look it's too big. No one could be an expert on every you have to dig into what you're passionate about. And learn every aspect of that and that become your area, focus. Yeah. Representative Ron Baker. Representative Tammy west is here joining us and your chairwoman. Also, right. Is that how I should address you sheriff the caucus? That's awesome. How's it been? This is your first time as first time today. Well, everybody stayed nice and relaxed just kind of went with the flow and got everything done got out on time and stayed flexible. What happens? So what are you? After state was done. Do what you have meetings afterwards. His various people. Do I've been in one that tomorrow morning committee meetings will start okay? Okay. What do you guys talk of what are the committee meetings, or what was the meetings today? Would you talk about what's on the agenda a lot of it was just getting planning done for the week scheduling getting stuff on the board committee meetings today that I'm aware of but they will start tomorrow morning. We will swan Ag meeting. Yeah. Is it, you know? It's funny. I keep because when you're not familiar, I keep thinking anti done this yet or not. But it's like when you like I just thought about when you have a freshman in high school when you go to school and the first day, and you're like a learning all this stuff. Obviously, it's totally different. Because this is legislation it sharp as a shotgun started. Really as there. We work on deadlines were costly on deadlines. A Bill that originates in house. We care this video with with majority leader echoes how Bill moves through. We just covered the house side with him that there is a deadline on when a Bill has to be out of house committee. If it's not heard or it's voted down. It's gone, and as repast that house and then go to a floor vote, but we're on a deadline now to get bills out of house committee, and then there's a deadline for floor votes in the house and then same thing in the Senate. They had on since then they've got to go over to the other body and pass those bodies before they can give the governor. It's an assembly line. It is that's the way to describe it. And there's a lot of bills. There was a lot of legislation filed the session. I think that comes with a lot of new members and everybody's coming in with fresh ideas. So that's excellent. But one of the things that I met on today is filed a Bill that was very similar to other bills. That were filed. So I'm a big proponent of. Let's collaborate. Let's just do one Bill. Let's not clog the system up with us all doing the same thing. So that was kind of what we were working on today is sure the trying to minimize duplicated wherever we saw that our committee work goes more smoothly. And that everybody is issue is getting hurt that makes common sense. Imagine that. Hey, boom. I like it should be on a coffee Cup. So many of the people here are really really good people. Are here because they want to do the right thing. And you're any negative news story you sound like an official. Look, you go to any place that has this many people working in it. And you're going to find people that are the executive and not the rule, but they like ends up in the news. But most people they're really trying to and we have a lot of great freshman. Lot of great ideas. I will tell you. I never thought I'd be talking to sophomore members of the legislature. Now's referring to him as senior members. But they are now. Their senior members of the legislature. How does that happen? You have already seven freshmen sophomore class go up. Most people aren't with term limits. One of the the consequences of people's for size. Most people don't serve their hoteliers right now. There's a lot of people that are cutting out really ever gets twelve year. Right. Yeah. Moving onto other things if you have a great job opportunity, and you know, you're term limited in a session and a half, you only get one more election. Well, it may not be there. Three there. Go take it. And so that's causing we've become that's that voters. Electorate was angry, and they showed up and. Oh, I think there was a complete air of excitement in anticipation of. I'm looking at the wall there where this picture and Eccles Florida Eccles Representative ECOSOC picture Ronald Reagan and says make my day kind of how it felt here things change when things change for things to get better. We've got to have some changes, and we've got to have people who are willing to step up and say, okay, I'm willing to make the hard decision and do the hard thing. So that positive change takes place. That's what I heard today. Yeah. I mean, these surprised that he went pretty big pretty big. And he whipped pretty specific. They're not said when we had him on the day after he was actually sworn in. There's nothing that I've seen about you. So far says I'm gonna go small person so expecting for state of the union, and I was looking forward to hearing her state of the state house look forward to hearing it, but he offers a pretty big proposal proposals. He wants to see big results. That's what a leader death. Yeah. They say I'm going to here. Follow me during the do you think that was that was expected from Lia the caucus? I don't know. I I was looking forward to that. And hoping that was what I heard because I feel like we've we've been hungry and nothing governor Fallon did not lead. But it's different. When you're in you, the the evening of your term that the lame duck. The leveraging all those things that you understand now in this building are necessary to move things forward. This is somebody who's bold. He has a vision who is not timid expressing the vision and has a plan to get there as the ability possibly to be your I seven or exactly and that inspires people to say, okay, let's do. And that's what I felt there today. Your colleague Representative beggar Russia about long-term planning for. Hi, sean. And that's with all that we've had. And I mean, I think there's been seven speakers says we took over in two thousand four Republicans third pro tem thousand ten that makes you governor in their first year could actually set the stage for the long-term planning you'll have two or three sessions left, really. It's very difficult. And I I feel from the new freshman class that this is a group of people that this is how I felt about our class now the sophomores the senior sophomore is that we are. There was an anticipation of problem solvers. We're not here to be politicians were not we came here because our children and grandchildren live in the state, and we want to solve the problems that are in front of us. And it's this governor stood says our problems are no different than other say, we got a little bigger hold the dig out of. But I think that he's got the vision. He's got a long term plan. This is not a band aid. I mean, we tried to rip that band aid off last session. And we're ready to go forward. So we're gonna stay unified. And that doesn't mean that everybody marches in lockstep that it does mean that we have to look at the plan. The educated about the plan and be willing to stand up for it defended and vote for I think there's a great thing today is we're not always gonna agree on every detail the policy, and that's okay. Listen, we still need to communicate. My doors are open. We have to have the dialogue. You come to an agreement. We have to get things done. Yeah. Yeah. But we don't ask people to compromise. That's one of the things. I always talk about I've got very strong principles. I s no one to compromise their principles. I don't compromise my principles, but I do want people to collaborate, right? And there's a big difference between coming in in compromising insane. Okay. We're going to collaborate on this. What are we going to identify as the problem? We're.

"From the state of the state compared to what we've had in the past and not to ever diminish anything that governor Fallon had to say. But I think people are excited about his plan and his vision, and are hopeful that, you know, putting is a top ten state is something that which truly are going to link arms and achieve and. You know, I think that that comes from both parties because I've heard a lot of Democrats are even decided in hopes that he will succeed. So that we can have some success. We've heard that from democrat leadership told us whether on the radio or just offer you. The governor call has been calling them in day, you'll have been used to hearing from when you're the minority party. But David born did that Franken did that guy speaking that? 'cause you're talking about governor Fallon. I think is a valid point the last two years, I believe. In modern polling. Tom only David born Frank king left office with private ability over sixty percent. Okay. So when you get in that seventh eighth year, it just different when you have a new chief executive seeing which direction this is going gonna go see what they are going to focus on. That's where it all comes through. And then the delivery of the message that is perceived in a senior be perceived very, well, he had a bunch of major points education. Criminal Justice reform Representative Ron Baker did anything stick out to you east prize for anything he said, or now, the one thing that I really hope that the educational community will understand is that you know, when he came in even when he was campaigning. He wants to be able to put together a plan for education similar to the roads and bridges plans. So there needs to be a long range plan, and we started on teacher pay last year. I think that he wants to continue that he did say that today. I know that when the teachers were up here during the walkout, they were really concerned about making sure that we got additional funding to classroom. And of course, that is something that we want to do. But I did like that. He said, okay. We've started on this path. Let's finish this first. And then let's continue on to the next step. And so I do hope that they understand that you know, we're gonna put more into salaries, but that doesn't mean that we're going to forget everything else because we are aware we've got to pour more money into the funding formula. And so we can get it to the classroom. But as he also alluded to him, and we've got to change some things with the funding formula as well. And so, you know, we do have some things that we've really got a roller sleeves up and work on that education is a priority. And and I hope that they understand that. What do you think? Right. We would talk about the funding formula..

I heard about that. He goes on to say the story heavily repeated. Elsewhere does not accurately portray the agency who made this bust. I spent three years in the US BP before homeland security was born and that was border patrol, by the way, but that mission has not changed the United States border patrols patrols the area between the ports of entry. We call them POE's CPAP or customs and border protection. Inspects the vehicle and pedestrian traffic coming through those peo- es and CPAP not the US BP made the foothill bust VG like other stories, the mainstream media got it wrong.

The legislature will hear another Bill about constitutional Kerry and everything I've talked about he's he's gonna sign it. Well, you know, it it went over like a lead balloon awhile time. How do you think? I mean, in your opinion, you're educated opinion. How do you think wife? Spitfire. I think it'll fly quickly, and I think it will go right through. And here's the reason why the reason that governor Fallon vetoed. It is because of her close association with the state police who hate the idea. Well, she didn't retailer. She didn't vote on at that. She didn't sign it. Yeah. Didn't sign it. Yeah. Okay. Thanks, great. Weekend. Yes. Got I think it's gonna fly through. I've really do. Because a lot of people were mad at Fallon for that. If Fallon had been running for election. She lost on that issue. I guarantee it, and I remember talking to my good friends over at Oklahoma second amendment association. They in seconds after she said, she wasn't going to sign it seconds. They say, okay, we're going to pursue it again when she's out of office. And I want to say Monday mornings when the session opens that's going to be one of the first bills. They get get into now. I don't know if it has to go through committee, or if it's already ready to go because most of the members were there last year and most of them signed it last year or or voted for it last year might gain on the left cannon. I think they have to rehear it because it was. The governors governors elected that starts a whole new calendar. Okay. Over the next year window, Chris writes league ammo for everyone. You mentioned Bradbury's short story. There will come soft rains on yesterday show. You were also talking about all the innovative things that Ray Bradbury had thought of the next best thing to reading the Ray Bradbury short story listening to it read by Leonard nimoy. I was told that by my good friend, Mike and the love cannon, and our producer bradberry was an astute. Visionary. As you pointed out some of his predictions in Fahrenheit four fifty one regarding technology, we use today such as pods ear buds and large panel televisions. He also perfectly predicted the change in society as a result of the technology the large televisions and Fahrenheit four fifty one. We're more than just TV's people use them as a platform to connect with other people similar to social networking people became disconnected and turn to pills due to the emptiness overdoses where a common theme in the story. And it's similar to the over prescribing of anti-depressants and the need for something that makes you feel good like opiates. Yeah. I remember in the story for Fahrenheit four fifty one his girlfriend overdoses, and they call the whoever and they come and pumper stomach out. Right then and there and give her a transfusion right there on the spot. Chris goes on to say books were banned in Fahrenheit four fifty one because they might cause unpleasant feelings which reminds me of the PC crowd and social Justice warriors silencing speech that might trigger someone bradberry was trying to warn us. But I fear. It's too late. Chris in many ways, you are correct. Especially when it comes to the depression that is brought to some people through social media. I was going to get to that a little bit later on. We'd have got this this young woman in New York committed suicide recently because she felt disconnected even when she was in a room of her favorite people. And I'm wondering if the disconnect was due to you know, she would feel more connected if she were on social media with them. And when she was not on social media talking to them face to face felt completely different about them. It's a strange effect. It's having on people. And I still don't know they know.

"The workdays over. Now, let's hash out the day's events. This is the drive with Leigh Matthews. The government shutdown continues. Not really felt the difference. Have you eight four hundred thousand star one thousand NewsRadio one thousand K T. Okay. If you want to join in the conversation Leigh Matthews KT, okay dot com is my Email address. And I covered all of that pretty much covers it. Yeah. This half hour of the program. Brought to you by new castle casino where real gamers com to play resetting the stage where we're talking about the government shutdown continuing. But also governor sworn in today, and if you have any hopes for his administration what you'd like to see him do is there anything specific you're looking for from his administration. What is he going to be able to do? The governor Fallon was not eight four thousand star one thousand and many of our locals who are not getting paid are getting some breaks. We're going to talk more about the government shutdown from Michael Bauer. And over the weekend. I learned some new things I wanted to share with you about just how much Trump has compromised. About how much he's already compromised. He started with a twenty five billion dollar proposal. He wanted twenty five billion to build the ball. And now it's down to five. Yet. Democrats haven't come back at all. With a counterproposal other than no, no wall. Summer thinking that the president should declare national emergency. Because he's got constitutional precedent to do it. From a case that goes back to Harry Truman's administration. Harry Truman was trying to seize control of coal production. No it was steel production steel production for the Korean war. And where it was determined that he could not seize control of that industry. He could do certain things under national emergency status. That's what the supreme court ruling. Now Truman did not get what he wanted out of that ruling. It could be used as justification for Trump to try to find the money that he needs in the defense spending or in the defense budget or in the homeland security budget to build his wall. We'll talk more about that. With Michael Bauer who is joining us from twenty four seven news a little later on. We're also going to be joined by Patrick Korelsky. He is one of the producers of red pilled America. And he's asking the question. Why are we hearing so much about transgenderism not just Bruce Jenner? Trans gender from a man to a female. But why it's getting to the point where okay, we're not even allowed to acknowledge the difference between male and female. Is that by design? Patrick Karachi will tell us. He has his new red pilled America podcast episode, which is available at Kato K dot com and at our iheartradio app, which is absolutely free. And you should download if you have it on NewsRadio one thousand Katie. Okay. So that's coming up. I, you know, I have my own theory about it. And I've not been shy about it here on on this program. A man is a man and a woman is a woman. And you can say God made it that way. If you like you can say biology made it that way, if you like, but there are genetic differences between men and women that cannot be changed. There are over six hundred twenty hormonal differences between men and women that cannot be changed. So to say that you can choose what gender you you can choose what cosmetically you look like, you can choose what cosmetically you feel like, but you will never be able to completely if you're a man become a woman, or if you're a woman become a man, and it's that simple. And if you deny that you are science denier. It'll be interesting to see to me. Anyway, if a lot of the people who are trying to encourage us to not acknowledge the difference between men and women are also the same people who believe in climate change and accuse us of being climate. Those of us who I believe in climate change isn't believe it's manmade. And therefore, I'm accused of being a woman, you're a science denier. And if those same people are the ones that are what we don't need to be discriminating between men and women. We don't need to be so discriminating that we actually acknowledge the difference between a male and a female. There is a difference. There's a big difference. A lot of differences, in fact, and it's supposed to be that way. I'm not saying, well, you know, what I am saying. I am saying there are things men can do women. Can't there are things women can do the band can't. And there's a reason for that. It's called biology. We'll get into it. More coming up on NewsRadio one thousand T. Okay. Did you hear about this? Speaking of the shutdown. Todd writes on social media quick while the government shutdown. Maybe we need to start a new one. And they traveler carrying a firearm was able to board a Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta to Tokyo. Back at the beginning of January and was not stopped TSA determined standard procedures were not followed. And a passenger did in fact pass through a standard screening TSA checkpoint with the firearm at the Atlanta airport. The passenger forgotten the firearm was on his carry on luggage. The incident was not part of the test. It was aboard. Delta Airlines, which also issued a statement saying that upon the customer's disclosure the airline reported the incident to the TSA. So evidently, he got to his destination. And then said, oh, gee, I forgot I had a gun in here. Makes you feel good about the TSA doesn't it? While they're all whining about not getting paid and staging sick outs. Oh, and by the way, we also learned over the weekend. They're getting five hundred dollars bonuses for doing such a good job over the Christmas holiday. Four one thousand style one thousand NewsRadio one thousand Katie okay? With Leigh Matthews the iheartradio app has a complete podcast section. And it's fantastic. One of the better podcast is called red pilled America. It's producers are Adriana Cortez and Patrick coryell Elsie. This week's episode deals with the reason surge and transgenderism as I mentioned, so Patrick as you heard me say just a moment before why has this come into the forefront lately in particular, you know, it is it's one of those topics that has been become weaponized. It's basically being used by many different groups to kind of attack their opposition. And so we go into in this episode of wrecked America, we go into the story of a guy named Walt hair. And he was he's seventy eight years old now, but he had he transitioned in his in nearly nine hundred eighty s and ended up d- transitioning after about living eight. Eight years as a woman, and we learned from him kind of the the the standard of treatment for transgenderism right now. And he is very vocal person about how we need to stop just affirming people in.

We now have a new leader Kevin business owner from Tulsa said he wanted to run the state government like a business give first time teachers a five thousand dollar bonus and reduce the streamline and streamline several state agencies in an effort to save money, consolidate districts. During the inauguration today. He said that he had begun thinking about running for governor here about two years ago. So he was frustrated to see the state struggle. Every time the price of oil would drop a men brother, and that's one of the things he doesn't have to deal with right now that governor Fallon did have to deal with now the price of oil is low right now. But then it's come up, and then it's come down. It's come up and right now, we're of writing a little bit from the last time the price was up a little bit than we were getting some some revenues him.

And they say you want to go eat. That's okay. We can take you over here to Charleston's or what's that? And so that's a local chain. Oh, cool. Are we can take it at Ted's Escondido? It's a local chain. We have a lot of that going force stead says Oklahoma's will have to work together to get the process started. He says there also needs to be more accountability in state government. He is right about that. And that way it will become more efficient to maximize services. He says he hopes that lawmakers can come together to set meaningful priorities and goals. I think the new legislature Cam and to work together to change the Oklahoma functions. He says he's encouraged by the progress made last year with education funding, but more needs to be done. I hope that doesn't include raising more taxes though, governors did because I think we've raised taxes enough we should be able to work with the what forty five percent of our budget now that goes towards education. I'm not accusing him of not saying that. I'm just saying. That's that's what's in my head. Stead say is he wants to focus on the state's ranking when it comes to incarceration rates, especially when it comes to long sentences for nonviolent offenses. I can't say that. I disagree with that. I think with some of the marijuana legislation. That's coming that'll help. In the end. He says he wants to make sure that everyone is on the same page when it comes to moving Oklahoma forward. He says he thanks everyone for the commitment to making Oklahoma a great place to live to work under raise family and to get this done together because Oklahoma's turn the turnaround starts right here. And that's been his whole thing. The turnaround starts here the around. And so in fact, I want to say hashtag turnaround is his is one of his handles. So that's cool. I wish him. Well.
