For the past few years I have belonged to Americans for the Arts Action Fund. That organization recently sent out this information, which I'd like to share:
State Appropriations Nationwide
State legislatures have determined their budgets for FY 2015, and arts funding continues to grow - especially in Florida, whose appropriation increased by more the 350 percent. Where does your state fall?
As you can see (hopefully), Oregon increased its funding for the arts to $2,155,508. That is much better than Washington ($1,093,000), Idaho ($702,000), and Montana ($538,391), but it doesn't compare very well with Minnesota, which has budgeted $34,189,000.
