NJ Arts Supporters Enlist Businesses To Lobby State For Arts Funding

New Jersey Governor James McGreevey says he’s reconsidering zeroing out the state’s arts budget, but for now the budget line still reads empty. “Arts organizations in New Jersey feel they now have a better chance of persuading state officials to restore funding because business groups have added their backing. Some chambers of commerce have made an effort to rally businesses that have a direct interest in arts activities.”
