Action Alert: Conference Committee Members for ARPA bill Appointed

On Monday November 15, members of the Conference Committee were appointed to negotiate the differences between the House and Senate American Rescue Plan Act Spending bills.


With the Legislature set to begin winter formal recess on November 17, the legislature has very little time to pass the ARPA spending bill. Otherwise they will have to wait until January. 

We have just a few days to make sure our State leaders hear loud and clear from the arts and cultural community.
