Updates on HB 4124/SB 1582 and SB 1531

This year's short legislative session recently ended without passing House Bill 4124/Senate Bill 1582, which would have created a grant program to distribute resiliency funding to Oregon arts and cultural organizations, was not passed. However, much of the funding that was requested through HB 4124/SB 1582 was passed instead through SB 5701, which is a general end-of-year spending bill. More details on SB 5701's arts and culture funding are discussed in this article from the Oregonian.

Senate Bill 1531 also passed - it allocates $250,000 to establish a semiquincentennial commission to be known as the America 250 Oregon Commission. Learn more about America 250 - the U.S. Semiquincentennial Commission.
