Senate restores funding for Georgia Council for the Arts; one hurdle remains

From Susan Weiner, executive director of the Georgia Council for the Arts: The Georgia Senate has voted to approve the Appropriation Committee’s recommendation, which includes $890,735 restored to the council. This enables the agency to match its federal grant and retain regional funding that, combined, equals more than $1 million.

One more hurdle remains before a final budget reaches the governor: the Conference Committee, made up of equal numbers of House members and senators. The committee’s purpose is to reconcile the differences between their budgets.
