In this interview, State Senator Adam Pugh (R-Edmond) pays a second visit to Not My Generation to discuss the end of the legislative session in Oklahoma and gives his thoughts on the legislature's budget transparency initiative. Along the way, we also discuss the "seedy underbelly" of youth sports, whether college athletes should simply be employees of their universities, and Sen. Pugh's thoughts about effective economic development in Oklahoma. And James & Emily let loose on the Federal Drug Administration's (FDA) regulation of sunscreen.
