UPDATE: At a Thursday committee hearing, House Bill 3028 passed with a vote of 6-5, meaning that a proposal to consolidate the Oklahoma Arts Council and Oklahoma History Center with the Tourism, History and Cultural Department may go up for a full vote in the House at any time.

Voting was closer than expected and broke party lines.
