Do your legislators support the arts?

Last week the Minnesota Citizens for the Arts posted a video interviewing the DFL candidates for Minnesota Governor about how they have - and would, if elected - support the arts.

This week - just in time for today's primaries - the MCA is following up with a more thorough report on where 2010 political candidates and federally elected officials stand on the arts. Click on your district number to find out what your Senator or House Rep thinks should happen to the Legacy Fund, whether they would support policies to increase accountability for school standards in the arts, and what music they enjoy most.

Note, many candidates did not respond to the MCA survey. In those cases it's hard to know whether we should take that to mean they don't care about the arts, or there was perhaps a legitimate reason for them not finding the time.
