Take action for the arts 05.24.11
Advocacy efforts in March, April, and May resulted in the Ohio House of Representatives including an additional $3 million for the arts in their version of the state budget.
The budget is now in the hands of the Ohio Senate for their consideration and recommendations. With news of improved revenues coming into the state of Ohio and remembering the drastic 47% cut to the arts in the current biennium, we find ourselves at a pivotal juncture.
Please make personal contact with your senator to voice your support of the arts and the benefits the community derives from the work of arts organizations. SPACES sent letters to House Representatives and Senators who sit on the budget and finance committees. Now it's your turn!
