Connecticut’s New Super Culture Agency

Connecticut creates a “super-agency” of culture that combines all the state’s cultural programs under one roof. “What there is plenty of, are politicos. This could bode well when it comes time to go after significant state dollars beyond the $24.48 million the new agency now oversees this fiscal year ($20 million comes from lodging tax revenues) and at least $20 million for the next; but when it comes to allocating those funds politicians haven’t the best of track records of fairness, merit and accountability.”
