The anti-Obama premium


Commentary

Brooks Mitchell
The battle cry from the state Capitol is, “I am more anti-Obama than you are!” Unfortunately, that has gone from the confines of campaign platform to the halls of the state Legislature with less than happy outcomes.

Mr. Popular


CFN

Gazette staff
If Chicken-Fried News were to hazard a guess as to the least popular legislator at the state Capitol, our money would be on state Rep. Mike Reynolds, R-Oklahoma City. The guy has been a consistent thorn in the side — or perhaps a fleshier body part — of House speakers, and the current one, Lawton Republican T.W. Shannon, is no exception.

Allergy sufferers give thanks


Letters to the Editor

Carmen Johnson
I applaud our state representatives for rejecting legislation that would have blocked everyday, law-abiding citizens’ affordable access to cold and allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine. Not long ago, state legislators were considering implementing burdensome legislation to require a doctor’s prescription for over-the-counter cold and allergy medicines that many Oklahomans, myself included, depend on.

Lock your doors and batten down the hatches, Oklahoma. A ruling by a federal judge might just make the state more susceptible to terrorism.

Advancing Medicaid reform


Commentary

Rep. Doug Cox
Not surprising to me, recommendations recently made by the Leavitt Partners (a consulting group hired to study the state’s Medicaid system and alternatives for addressing the Affordable Care Act) closely mirrored those made by Sen. Brian Crain, R-Tulsa, and me. Contained in Senate Bill 640, which did not get a hearing last session, these recommendations form a road map for Oklahoma’s future health care for low-income citizens.

Sex offenders are now less offender-y?


CFN

Gazette staff
Oklahoma’s sex offender registry is about to get a lot shorter due to a state Supreme Court ruling that prohibits the Department of Corrections from retroactively applying sex offender laws.
