Indian cultural center in Oklahoma faces construction delay
Construction on the American Indian Cultural Center and Museum in Oklahoma could stop in a few months, according to a state lawmaker.

Sen. Harry Coates (R) said the center needs additional funds that would have been available under a $43 million bond package. But lawmakers failed to vote on the package before the end of the session last week.

Construction of the $170 million facility began in 2006. The 300-acre site will feature a museum, a welcome center and private development.
