The Michigan legislature is in the final stages of completing the state budget. We need your help to support the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) in the FY 18 budget.
Time is of the essence, the Conference Committee on General Government will meet this Thursday, June 8 at 8:00 am. The  legislators listed below have been named to the Conference Committee on General Government and are charged with determining the final budget allocation for the MCACA.  We ask that you please call and ask them to do the following, especially if you are their constituent or have a personal relationship with any of these individuals.

  1. Support the Governor and Senate Appropriation Subcommittee on General Government’s recommendation to increase funding for the MCACA in the FY 2018 budget by $1 million using one-time-funds.
  2. Maintain the decision of the House and Senate Appropriations Subcommittees on General Government to restore the MCACA’s original boilerplate language.
