RICHMOND — Even as hundreds of arts supporters wearing "Save the Arts" stickers descended on the Capitol, the House of Delegates passed a version of the state budget on Feb. 25 that would eliminate the state arts commission.
Advocates — including some from the Twin Counties — packed the House gallery and lined the halls and staircases to urge lawmakers to preserve the Virginia Commission for the Arts.
However, there was no discussion of arts funding before the delegates approved their budget by a 61-38 vote.
