Arts Advocacy Victory

Posted By TBA Staff, Tuesday, June 16, 2015

The new and improved appropriation for the California Arts Council (CAC) passed both Houses yesterday, and was included in the budget sent to the Governor's desk, with $7 million from the State's General Fund for the CAC, which the Governor's office says will serve as the new "base line" for future years (the base line has been at just $1 million since the huge cuts of 2003; the increases of the past two years were one-time-only). 

The CAC receives additional funds from other sources as well, including the NEA and sales of arts license plates. With the new $7M appropriation, the total estimated budget for the CAC will reach more than $11 million for FY16.
