The infusion of $6 million in federal stimulus dollars is keeping construction going at the American Indian Cultural Center and Museum.

Gov. Brad Henry’s office gave the Native American Cultural and Education Authority the money from the governor’s discretionary fund. The money will allow construction on the $177.5 million project to continue through the next legislative session. This past summer, officials worried the project would run out of money and sit idle after lawmakers failed to hear a bill to allow the museum to sell revenue bonds to pay for construction.
