Texas Governor Proposes Elimination of State Historical Commission in State of the State Address
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Texas Governor Rick Perry, Texas Legislature, funding historic preservation, endangered history, Texas Historical Commission, Texas Commission on the Arts
Contributed By: The National Trust for Historic Preservation's Department of Public Policy

Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) has ask the Texas Legislature to indefinitely suspend funding for four Texas agencies and consolidate the functions of dozens more as part of a sweeping budget plan that would make deep spending reductions across state government.  Funding for the Texas Historical Commission and the Texas Commission on the Arts would be eliminated altogether according to a summary of government efficiency proposals outlined in Perry's State of the State address on Tuesday.  Those two agencies, which provide funding for the promotion of Texas arts and culture and the upkeep of state historic structures, were given over $100 million in the previous budget when bond proceeds and federal dollars are counted. Texas is one of the top five states in desperate budget straits in 2011 and Perry apparently wants at least a two-year moratorium on the cultural resources funding in order to redirect state spending to only “mission-critical” areas.
