Blunt Budget Boosts Arts Funding
By Tom Weber, KWMU
Lovers of the arts headed to Jefferson City today (Wed.) to urge lawmakers to fund the arts in Missouri.
But their voices will contain a little less desperation than during the past two years.
Governor Matt Blunt has proposed a budget that spends more on the arts in the upcoming fiscal year than in the past two years combined.
And while advocates for the arts say they'd always like to see more spent on their cause, they're certainly not complaining this year.
KWMU's Tom Weber prepared this report.
