The Advocate 4Culture group is asking supporters to contact their senators to support two bills. One is
SB 5958, sponsored by Senator Scott White (D-46).
Also, SSB 5834, is back in play and it's on the Senate floor. Supporters are asking groups and individuals who appreciate the value of heritage and culture for our communities to contact their Senators and say, "VOTE YES ON SSB 5834 and SB 5958!"
If you care please call or email your Senator TODAY!

4Culture invests $4.5M every year in artists & arts/heritage organizations and activities in King County. This is the single largest source of contributed revenue available in our community on a regular basis for artists, arts organizations, heritage organizations and heritage/preservation projects.Hundreds of local arts, education and heritage groups support valuable, ongoing and groundbreaking ideas and programs that also leverage huge benefits to our regional economy.
A UW study last year showed the remarkable depth of economic value brought to our region and other regions by arts and heritage funding.
