A Detailed Preview of the Oklahoma Legislature's Upcoming Session with Noted Analyst David Blatt
The Oklahoma Legislature will convene for this year's session on Monday, February 3rd, at noon. Which issues, both greater and lesser, will our state's lawmakers be focused on throughout 2014? We explore that multi-faceted question on this edition of StudioTulsa; our guest is David Blatt, executive director of the OK Policy Institute, which is "a non-partisan independent policy think-tank" you can learn more about here. Blatt is a widely respected public-policy expert whose work involves doing research, writing papers, and giving presentations on state budget and tax policy, poverty, asset development, and other subjects. He's also a member and regional co-chair of the Scholars Strategy Network, and he previously served, before his tenure at OK Policy, as Director of Public Policy for the Community Action Project of Tulsa County. He's also worked as a budget analyst for the Oklahoma State Senate.
