Yay arts ed funding initiative! I'm working on that with Create CA and Arts Orange County, and I really would love to participate in that study to share information. It's not 1% of the general fund, it's about 1/2%, it's 1% of prop 98 funding.

Shanin, you can share your findings with us

Yes Shanin, 1% of the general fund required to go to Prop 98 guarantee
Shanin Ziemer
47:05
No, you're misunderstanding the legislation. It would be 1% of the funding though prop 98, so that is actually about 1/2% of the general fund. I would be happy to discuss this with you to give you an explanation of the legislation.
Marilyn Cachola Lucey she/her

Correct 1% of prop 98 funds
Shanin Ziemer

I see how you're saying it. We're saying the same thing different ways, my apologies.
Marilyn Cachola Lucey she/her
