Gov. Sam Brownback told the Lawrence Journal-World that he plans to revisit the arts in his proposed budget next year, though he wouldn't provide any details. He should undo the disastrous decision he made this past legislative session to veto state funding for the Kansas Arts Commission and to lay off all its staff. He said at the time that private funding could fill the gap and that the budget cut would not affect federal funding. Neither proved true, as private fundraising has lagged and the National Endowment for the Arts and regional arts groups determined that Kansas was ineligible for grants.
