The Arts Alliance is trying to collect legislation, business and finance information important to artists, creative workers, organizations and businesses and post it here. As is said, its like trying to drink from a fire hose! So in addition to our list, you will also find contact information for others in-the-know: U.S. and Michigan State legislators from Washtenaw County and a short list of media sources.
Please, if you discover updates, broken links, errors or new sources, contact us at email@example.com. Thank you!
With appreciation to elected officials, media and fact-checkers!
