The federal government raises, spends and borrows money like most of its citizens.

A state task force makes recommendations to improve the lives of children of the incarcerated.


Clifton Adcock
About 26,000 children in Oklahoma have at least one parent in prison. Factor in kids with a parent in a county or city jail or federal prison, and that number is even higher.
