Fattman Votes No On Cultural Council Budget

By MyFm's Rick Michaels - Republican State Senator Ryan Fattman of Webster was one of the only “NO” votes when the Senate boosted the Massachusetts Cultural Council budget, by an additional one-million dollars last week, he’s questioning the Council's spending practices.  According to a report this morning in the Boston Herald Fattman says the agency hasn’t earned the increase saying the trips, hotel and restaurant bills that have been racked up by the agency is embarrassing. Senator Fattman says he sides with the House version of the budget proposed for the Cultural Council, setting aside $1.5 million less than the Senate version.  More than $9,000 has been spent so far this fiscal year on hotels…Fattman says, we can’t rubber stamp these budgets and is calling for tougher oversight of the council's spending moving forward.
