Re: “Governor proposes MAC closure

Note that this is the Governor´s budget "proposal." The Legislature will make the actual decision as to how to balance the budget during the regular session of the legislature beginning in January. It´s not too early to start letting your elected representatives and senators that this is a bad way to save a few dollars. The 5.2 million saved by closing the museums is less than 1/2 of 1 percent of the budget shortfall. Given that the MAC produces a net benefit to the Spokane economy of around 10 million dollars, the 1 million saved by closing the MAC makes little economic sense.
I could list at least a half dozen more reasons why closing these museums is a bad idea both economically and culturally, but I don´t want to belabor the point.
Together we can see that this doesn´t happen. Contact your legislators today and tomorrow and even the next day if you can.
