Fallin Issues Statement on Withdrawn Subpoena

OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin says she's, quote, "pleased" after a House special committee withdrew its subpoena of her chief of staff.

In late October, Fallin asked staff from the Office of Management and Enterprise Services, the state attorney general's office and the Office of the State Auditor and Inspector to investigate financial issues in the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Fallin says the executive branch of the Oklahoma government and all state agencies are willing to cooperate with the House special committee, and that it is important that the House committee confers with the agencies already investigating the situation. Earlier this year the State Department of Health made an emergency request for $30 million, without which health department officials said the agency could fail to meet payroll or be able to fund vital services.
