OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Mike Hunter on Tuesday announced that the FBI and the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will partner with his office to investigate issues relating to the use of federal funds at the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

Hunter said attorneys and investigators with his office will work with federal authorities and the state auditor’s office to scrutinize movement and management of both state and federal monies at the OSDH.

“I appreciate the collaboration of the FBI and HHS in insuring that we can conduct a thorough and exacting review of the situation at OSDH,” Hunter said. “We will get to the bottom of what happened there.”
