Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman on Friday issued the following statement after the House of Representatives approved Senate Bill 839, which would provide funding for construction of the Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture, better known as OKPOP.
“I am extremely grateful to my colleagues in both houses of the Legislature for their support of this unique and promising project. The diligent and thorough work of the Oklahoma Historical Society in putting together a credible business plan for the project assures us this effort will be a success. I would also like to applaud generous private donors for their tremendous support of this project. OKPOP will be a successful tourist attraction, a center for the celebration of Oklahoma’s culture and a source of pride for decades to come.”
