    MALC is actively following the Commonwealth’s FY18 budget process. We watch  for several “line items” in the budget- the Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), funding to our libraries, the tourism funding formula, and the film tax credit program. We also monitor what is filed in the “outside” section(s) of the budget.

    The second step in our state budget process is the release of the House’s proposed budget which is set to release it on Monday, April 10th.

    The House Committee on Ways & Means is responsible for this draft budget.

    Amendments to House’s proposed FY18 budget will need to be filed by noon on Thursday, April 13th.

    On Monday, the MALC Steering Committee will carefully go over the House’s propose budget and we will post what we find and what advocacy actions will be needed.

    So stay tuned….
