Fallin Releases Challenged Emails

Governor Mary Fallin announced Monday that she has released documents that an Oklahoma judge previously ruled were protected through a deliberative process privilege. At issue were 31 documents about a 2011 decision involving Obamacare. "I firmly believe and the court has affirmed that it is important to protect the legal right of governors to receive candid and private advice," Fallin said. "However, I am committed to transparency. I have decided to waive the protection provided by the court so the public can understand the process that went into the policy decision not to implement an Obamacare exchange or Medicaid expansion, both of which would be unsustainable costs to the state and bad public policy."
