Florida Legislature Considers $21 Million In Arts Funding

A bill providing $21 million in state funding for the arts is being considered by the Florida legislature this week. “It marks the end of a one-year funding hiatus begun when the Legislature emptied the state’s arts trust funds, leaving no money for cultural grants. Florida’s museums and other arts centers have more than $8 million in private donations from as far back as 1999 that they can’t touch, awaiting matching state money.”
