thanks for standing up for culture - more work ahead

Thanks to all of the advocates that made it out on this beautiful Saturday to attend town hall meetings with legislators. Frank Chopp, Jamie Pedersen and Ed Murray had a standing-room-only crowd from the 43rd district.

When asked specifically about legislation that will fund arts and heritage, each of them expressed strong support, but it was clear that a partnership with low income housing was desired. We like this marriage too!

Now, one of our tasks is to make sure legislators do the work necessary to add low income housing support into ESSB6051, which has a public hearing in the House Finance Committee on February 23rd (see following post). Stay tuned for more updates and ways you can help pass legislation for arts and heritage once and for all!
