Success! 4Culture Saved!

Call it 11th hour. Call it a “Hail Mary” pass. With only a couple hours left in the legislative special session last night, SSB 5834 passed in the House. This bill permits counties to direct an existing portion of local lodging taxes to programs for arts, culture, heritage, tourism, and housing. This means 4Culture’s funding will continue and we’ll all benefit from their fine work supporting arts, heritage and preservation in King County. Thank you all who contacted legislators. Thank you to the legislators who have voted for the various senate and house bills that support 4Culture. It has been a roller coaster ride but it’s finally over. The bill has been delivered to the Governor for her signature.

    Thank you to everyone for helping to make this happen! 4Culture would not be the organization that it is without support from local arts & heritage groups and invested community members. Our cultural community is what empowers us. Thank you again to everyone who reached out and make cultural programming in King County their #1 priority. This is your win! Pat yourselves on the back for a job well done!
