It’s a start! Through the hard work of ARTS North Carolina‘s lobbyists and advocates, the House has recommended a $500,000 increase to Grassroots Arts. (That’s money that gets distributed to local arts councils, projects, and artists in all 100 counties.)
After the House passes their version of the budget, their recommendations move to the Senate for debate and approval.
Any differences between the House version of the budget and the Senate version of the budget are worked out over several weeks in a specially appointed Conference Committee.
