Over the weekend, the State Legislature voted to pass two bills supporting arts and culture. The House passed HB1997 and the Senate passed SB5834. This is great news and means we’re half way from saving 4Culture! The Seattle Times covered the story here.
So what’s next? The bills now swap places to be heard in the opposite chamber. Advocate4Culture outlines the process on its blog.
Stay tuned. Expect another big push in the next week or two. That means more letter writing and trips to Olympia. Your voices have been heard so far so thank you.
