23 percent cut for MA cultural council

The Massachusetts Cultural Council will receive a budget of $9.7 million for the fiscal year beginning July 1, under a state budget signed by Governor Deval Patrick today. That’s a cut of 23 percent from the MCC’s current budget. Which is no big surprise as the budget Patrick signed today is the same budget that was approved by the state legislature on June 19.

And in the interest of mathematics, we are glad that the Massachusetts Cultural Council has finally stopped rounding the budget cut up to “24 percent” and gone with “23.4% percent reduction.”

June 19: $9.7M for MA cultural council?
May 20: Senate votes $9.7M for MA arts council.
