Lt. Governor Roberts Applauds Restoration of Arts Funding

Providence, RI - June 4, 2010

"There was encouraging news in the budget approved last night with the restoration of RISCA funding, which directly benefits small arts businesses and organizations in our state," said Lt. Governor Elizabeth H. Roberts. "The creative economy was responsible for 1300 jobs in Rhode Island last year, and restored funding ensures that job growth will continue in the creative sector. Local arts programming again will be supported in our schools and communities, and Rhode Island will maintain its status as a hub of cultural and artistic ingenuity," said Roberts.
