Pennsylvania: New Arts Caucus

The Pennsylvania legislature is in the process of forming a bipartisan, bicameral arts and culture caucus in the state’s general assembly. Initiated by leaders from both the Democratic and Republican parties, the caucus plans to play a variety of roles:

  • Support the drafting and passage of legislation advancing the arts and culture.
  • Provide research and analysis on pending legislation.
  • Provide periodic briefings on pertinent issues pertaining to the state’s arts and culture infrastructure.
  • Develop issue-specific talking points and materials for caucus members to use in public and with the media.

Rationale for the formulation of this new caucus cited the economic benefits of the arts to Pennsylvania as well as the impact of the arts on educational achievement. For more information, contact Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Executive Director Philip Horn.
