Bill pulled that would have defunded Oklahoma Arts Council

Devon Green February 25th, 2014

Rep. Dan Fisher (R, District 60) today pulled a bill that proposed a 100 percent cut in state funding for the Oklahoma Arts Council over the next four years.

House Bill 2850, which proposed a 25 percent reduction in funding over the next four years, was pulled by its author. 

In a to Oklahoma Gazette, his administrative assistant, Lindsay Gasaway, confirmed that pulled the bill “rather than run a bill that was going to fail" and would not get the necessary votes needed to pass.
