Who are the 26 chicken-shit legislators who would vote against arts funding?

House Bill 1229 had a majority vote, 44-26, but was shy of the two-thirds it needed to pass.


But that doesn’t mean the bill is dead, said Pat Boyd, executive director of South Dakotans for the Arts, the state’s advocacy group that leads the effort to get arts funding back into the budget.

Like Pat said, we still have a way of getting it back, it is just disappointing that some legislators don’t give to shits about arts education. Sad, Sad, Sad. I wonder how many of them have children or grandchildren who took band and art classes in public school?

One Thought on “No arts funding? Maybe.

  1. I just found out that Roger Hunt voted against the funding, in most cases that probably wouldn’t surprise anyone, he just wants babies to be born he doesn’t care about their education after that. But what is ironic is his son is a super talented artist / animator. Roger must think he was inspired by God, not an educator, to seek a career in art.

    Please go away Roger.
