OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - Gov. Phil Bryant solved an air conditioning dilemma at the Walter Anderson Museum of Art with a $141,000 check from what he called leftover Katrina project money.

At a reception Tuesday, The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1DYXm1u) Bryant explained the rather complicated route the money took to get to the museum. He says it came from the Mississippi Development Authority managed federal Katrina funding with historical-restoration requirements.

Bryant told the group he pushed for the funding because the need was urgent. The museum has been functioning since June with backup air units to keep $21 million in art at the right temperature and humidity — between 66 and 74 degrees and at 45 to 55 percent humidity.
