"Hail Mary Pass" Attempt for OKPop
At the 11th hour of the legislative session, Senate President Pro-Tem Brian Bingman of Sapulpa is considering legislation that would create an Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture in Tulsa. It would be built in the Brady Arts District.
Bingman's plan would use revenue from the Oklahoma History Center bonds, once the center is paid for, to finance bonds for OKPop.
Bingman says his plan has no connection to the half-finished Indian Cultural Center in Oklahoma City. It still lacks $40-million to finish construction.
Bingman says OKPop has a good business plan, would be self-sustaining and would not need on-going state funding.
