OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma House is advertising a legal notice of plans to either complete the unfinished American Indian Cultural Center and Museum or transfer ownership to the city of Oklahoma City.

Republican House Speaker Jeff Hickman said Monday that no legislation has been filed to address the museum. He says the House is required to advertise the notice for four weeks to move forward with any option for the museum before the Legislature must adjourn on May 29.

Construction of the 173,000-square-foot structure began in 2006 but was halted in 2012 when the project ran out of money. The state has already spent about $90 million on the structure and lawmakers have rejected proposals to spend another $40 million, money that would be matched by $40 million in private funding.
