Another Money Pit (Update)

In April, I blogged about the American Indian Cultural Center and Museum in OKC, half-built and out of money seven years after construction began. Here's a recent AP article reporting that although the funds to resume construction have not been secured, a new opening date has been set for 2017.

"[T]he state is paying $52,000 a month for security at the site until lawmakers can vote on the $40 million funding bill in February."

According to Executive Director Blake Wade, the $40 million funding bill needs to be passed because we cannot afford to keep paying $52,000 a month in security costs.

Are you convinced?
