OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma state Senate subcommittee is scheduled to hold an interim study to discuss the future of the planned American Indian Cultural Center and Museum in Oklahoma City.

Construction on the project at the intersection of Interstates 35 and 40 began about seven years ago and approximately $95 million has been spent on the unfinished facility.

A plan to take $40 million from the state’s Unclaimed Property Fund to match with $40 million in pledges for the museum passed the state Senate earlier this year, but was not heard in the House.

The Oklahoma State Senate Education Subcommittee on Appropriations will hold an interim study on the project Monday morning at the state Capitol.
