Attorney General Hunter to Provide Advice to Department of Health on Legal Challenge to Rules on State Question 788

OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Mike Hunter today sent a letter in response to Oklahoma Department of Health Interim Commissioner Tom Bates, saying his office will review the legal challenges to the agency’s rules on State Question 788.

The attorney general’s response comes after a letter from Bates requested counsel from the Attorney General’s Office on ‘how best to proceed with the defense of this action’.

“We will expedite this request in order to give clarity to the Department of Health on how to address this legal challenge,” Attorney General Hunter said. “The review will be thoughtful, thorough and transparent. We will publicly release the findings and recommendations provided to Mr. Bates when completed, hopefully by the end of the week.
