TLO Show: Ice Storms and the OG&E monopoly with Jim Roth

7:16 AM EST on November 9, 2020

As thousands and thousands of Oklahomans are now going two weeks without power thanks to OG&E's slow response to yet another ice storm, we thought it would be a good idea to have former Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner Jim Roth – the Dean of Oklahoma City University's School of Law – on the podcast to see what, if anything, can be done to prevent the same thing from happening in the future.

It resulted in an educational and informative talk about the role of corporation commission, OG&E's monopoly, the cost to bury lines, and all that stuff. We also talked to Jim – a former Oklahoma County Commissioner – about the current controversies in that line of government, and what can be done to make county government more efficient.

Give it a listen!
