Sen. Kyle D. Loveless (R-Oklahoma City) released the following statement today regarding the American Indian Cultural Center and Museum.
“I am pleased the committee appointed by Oklahoma City Mayor Cornett today heard the consultant’s report on this project and it now heads to the full City Council. This proposed plan exemplifies the Oklahoma Standard. City, county, state and tribal governments have all joined together to showcase our unique history and shared culture by moving forward with this Smithsonian-style museum.
“This project was started decades ago and I am relieved to see it come one step closer to completion. The conservative plan passed by the legislature last session allows the City of Oklahoma City to take over operations of the Center from the state so we can move forward with the completion of the museum and begin sharing our state’s story with the world.”
