>RE: Governor Proposes Small Increase for Arts Council
>Despite a projected state budget deficit, Governor Gray Davis has

>million. This leaves in place the $6 million increase approved by
>Governor Wilson this year and allows for a $257,000 augmentation to the
>Local Arts Education program, which is funded from the sale of the arts
>The budget actually calls for an Arts Council budget of $29 million, but
>according to the CAC, this includes a $7.8 million carryover from this
>year as part of a $25 million one-time allocation to selected cultural
>institutions. Only $17.2 million will actually be spent this year and
>shows up in next year's budget.
>During the campaign, Davis promised to work towards a CAC budget equal
>to $1 per capita in California, or $34 million. The California Arts
>Advocates will lobby the legislature and governor to secure that
>increase to move California in the top 10 of state's funding the arts.
