OKLAHOMA CITY -

News On 6 has learned from sources at the state Capitol that the findings of a special House investigation committee to be released Thursday are substantial, with a lot of documentation. 

The source says the committee is expected to recommend significant action be taken as a result.

For about a month, the special committee has been investigating Representative Dan Kirby, a Republican from Tulsa and Representative Will Fourkiller, a Democrat from Stilwell. 

The committee was originally formed to look into a wrongful termination settlement agreement paid to a former state House employee in November out of House funds.

Here's how we got to this day with Representative Dan Kirby:

  • Sexual harassment allegations made in September 2015
  • State money used to settle wrongful termination claim in November 2016
  • Kirby resigned a month later.
  • Resignation wasn't official, so Kirby takes back resignation days later.
  • Kirby appeared last month before the  committee after originally refusing to attend.

Representative Will Fourkiller is being investigated because a complaint against him was made in April 2015 and involved a high school page.

The findings will be released at 1 p.m. at the State Capitol.
