California Governor Proposes To Take Meat Cleaver To Arts Budget

After having its budget chpped 50 percent this year, it looks like the California Arts Council is in for another huge cut. “Looking to close an overall deficit now estimated at $38.2 billion, Davis is calling for cuts that would slash the CAC’s funding from $22.4 million this year to $8.4 million in the 2003-04 fiscal year.” In 2001 the CAC’s budget was $32 million.
