Legislature Overrides Governor's Arts Veto

On Monday, July 30, the Senate voted to override Governor Charlie Baker's veto to the Mass Cultural Council budget, increasing state investment in arts and culture by $2 million.

This unanimous vote in the Senate and the earlier 141-8 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 increase the Mass Cultural Council budget to $16 million.
