South Carolina Governor Proposes Eliminating Arts Commission

“The state’s annual appropriation for the Arts Commission is less than 0.04 percent of the state’s total $5.1 billion budget. Why would Gov. Haley single out such a small agency? If the Commission is eradicated the budget savings will be minimal. And we would immediately lose $900,000 in matching funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.”
