‘It’s our ace’
Dank said the American Indian Cultural Center and Museum would be wonderful for Oklahoma and take advantage of the state’s unique tribal heritage.
“We have something here that could be huge for the state of Oklahoma,” Dank said. “It’s our ace and it needs to be played. It’s just like the Thunder (NBA basketball team).”
Senate Bill 1651, the museum funding bill, previously passed the state Senate and is scheduled to be heard Monday by the House Natural Resources and Regulatory Services subcommittee. That’s the same day that thousands of teachers and parents are scheduled to rally at the state Capitol for higher teacher pay and increased education funding.
Roberts contends amending the bill would be “a huge win for teachers and students.”
