The Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission has voted to permanently shut down a Texoma airport.

The Commission voted Thursday to begin closing Lake Murray Airport saying other area airports have greater need for the funding Lake Murray Airport receives.

They said because of a contract with the Federal Aviation Administration the state may be forced to pay back $184,000 in grant money.

The Commission will next ask the U.S. Secretary of Transportation to be relieved of those contractual obligations.
