Observercast

No Sunshine On The Stittshow

on

Oklahoma taxpayers are getting a PhD-level education into the corrosive effects of a statehouse supermajority that brays incessantly about transparency but all-too-often operates in secret: Swadleygate and Epic, back-room corporate welfare deals and bullied agency boards, a $10 billion state budget crafted behind closed doors and rammed through with no public input and scant public debate. For this week’s Observercast – No Sunshine On The Stittshow – the state’s foremost expert on open meetings and open records laws, Oklahoma State University Professor Joey Senat, joins us to explore the troubling assault on the public’s right to know and the damage being inflicted on taxpayers, governance and public policy.
