State voters and taxpayers who want Washington's legislators to keep funding the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) can find a quick link to an online letter form at the Greater Spokane Incorporated's YourPolicyVoice.org.
The letter is a quick form that allows people to support the MAC, which faces possible closure due to major cuts proposed by the governor's 2011-2013 biennial budget. The message there will be forwarded to legislators based on selections the letter-writer chooses in the online form.
The MAC is dependent on state funding, plus grants, private support, memberships and exhibit sponsors.
The museum houses the Inland Northwest’s largest art and history collections, exhibitions, and historical records.
