Oklahoma City journalist Patrick McGuigan, editor of CapitolBeatOK, is spotlighted in the May 2012 issue of Franklin Center News. McGuigan was asked, "What’s the most important or interesting story you’ve worked on for CapitolBeatOK?" McGuigan pointed to a series of news stories
focused on the year-long process that led to enactment of a scholarship program allowing special needs/special education students to access the best educational setting for their needs, including in private settings. In terms of substantive policy, this may be one of the most important policy issues I've ever covered.
