OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Private donors have given backers of the American Indian Cultural Center and Museum until the end of the month to come up with a plan to keep the project alive.

Museum backers had hoped to secure $40 million in state funding from the Legislature this year, but the measure never made it out of the House of Representatives. Native American Cultural and Educational Authority Executive Director Blake Wade says museum backers are doing everything they can to find a way to fund the project.

Wade tells The Journal Record (https://bit.ly/1x7fym3 ) that he’s met with Oklahoma City Council members to discuss the city assuming control of the project. Oklahoma City Manager Jim Couch confirmed the city is meeting with museum officials but says talks are still preliminary.
