Critical vote on state arts funding in legislature – Your letter needed Tomorrow, Monday, June 2nd!
MBMAG is sending a letter, you can too. By filling out this form, and faxing it to the assembly members listed below. Thank you for your support!
The State Legislative Budget Conference Committee will meet on Monday, June 2, and among the issues it will act upon is the increase in state arts funding that was recommended the Assembly earlier this month.
This is a critical moment for what we believe is our best chance in over a decade to restore funding for the arts in our state!
If you’ve ever benefited from the classes at a community college near you, please take the time to read about the repeatability regulations that went into effect in September of 2013.
“…In addition to reducing access for all students/community members, these changes will have a devastating impact on visual and performing arts across the state. Without changes to these regulations, the depth and breadth of community college arts programs, which have been built for over fifty years, will crumble. (Arts and physical education students throughout the state are particularly impacted the regulations. While students can, in the case of a “content-related family,” repeat a course up to four times, they can only take a total of four courses in a content-related family. This significantly limits the success and access for students who must repeat courses multiple times in order to become proficient.)…”
