Appropriations Committee Releases Budget

The Appropriations Committee’s Budget includes full restoration of Arts & Culture line item Grants, which were previously reduced or eliminated in the Governor’s Budget. The Committee combines the two grant accounts, Basic Cultural Resources and Culture, Tourism, and Arts grants into one with funding of $2,000,000 (a total reduction of about $1 million). The Committee’s budget does include a reduction to the Statewide Marketing line item, of $12,289,982 (approximately 50%). In addition, the Committee recommends the transfer of funds for the Connecticut Humanities Council, from the Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) to the Connecticut State Library (total transfer of $2,272,633).
