House Special Investigation Committee Sets First Meeting for Monday

The House Special Investigative Committee will meet on Monday to begin its work on unraveling where the money was misspent within the Oklahoma Department of Health. It was recently discovered that financial mismanagement has led to a need for $30 million dollars in emergency funding from the Legislature. The Committee was created to investigate the situation.

The first witnesses will be the same three who were at first subpoenaed last week, but quickly informed the Committee they would appear voluntarily. They are Department of Health acting director Preston Doerflinger, Office of Management and Enterprise Services acting director Denise Northrup and Governor Fallin’s chief of staff Chris Benge.

The first meeting will be held at 9:30 a.m. in Room 2006 at the State Capitol on Monday. The meeting will be open to the public and streamed live on the House website.

    Beware Oklahoma the dog and pony show is about to begin with no results for parties involved……. Leaders will actively muddy up the waters with no hard facts to move on to charges against anyone.
