House Bill 135 and Senate Bill 465 are pieces of legislation that continue a $1 million Admissions and Amusement Tax distribution for the Maryland State Arts Council by removing the sunset provision found in 2016 legislation.
The Admissions and Amusement Tax will continue to:
- help fund hundreds of arts organizations and artists across Maryland
- bring increased investment for all 24 county arts council.
- ensure that MSAC's Arts in Education programs continue to grow.
We see vibrant arts communities in every region of Maryland. With dedicated arts investment, we can continue to be a leader in the nation for arts investments and ensure that the next generation of Marylanders is afforded the same incredible access that we enjoy today.
