Arts Update

NYS Arts offered the following update on the NYS budget. The proposed budget was $38.9 million and the Legislature added 3.5 million for a total of $42.650 million for grants to the field. $42.650 million represents an 8.79% cut from the beginning of FY 2008-09. NYS Arts also mentions that the total State budget is $131 Billion, and further cuts may result as NY faces a growing deficit (possibly $16 to 17 billion).
