Legislature Overrides Governor's Arts Veto
On Thursday, September 28, the Senate voted to override of Governor Charlie Baker's summertime veto to the Mass Cultural Council, reversing a 13% cut to the creative community.

This unaminous vote in the Senate and the earlier 138-14 vote in the House shows bipartisan support and makes a strong statement that arts and culture are public goods worthy of state investment.

Your legislators need to know that their actions are appreciated.

Send your legislators a note, thanking them for recommitting their support and restoring the Mass Cultural Council budget to $14 million.
