Save Arts and Heritage! What you can do.

If you believe arts and culture are important in our community, as I do, you can help keep funding for the arts, heritage and preservation during the 2010 legislative session in Olympia.

We need your help now! Two bills, one in the House (HB 2252) and one in the Senate (SB 6116), will be introduced early in the session, which begins on January 11th. Both provide future funding for culture in King County. This is the sixth year legislation has been sponsored to extend a small portion of King County's lodging tax to support cultural programs. Stay tuned to this blog for updates and bill information.

Your actions that can make a difference:
1. write an email to your legislator
2. attend a hearing in Olympia
3. testify on behalf of the bills
4. or just help spread the word

Legislators respond to public input; conversely, they don't feel compelled to act if no one seems to care about an issue. Let's get this legislation passed this year. We can only do it with your help. Please see the links to the right to find your legislator!
