There needs to be a serious examination into what’s going wrong with the BSO and I realize that’s what was meant to happen this summer with Del. Maggie McIntosh’s bill, HB 1404. This issue is definitely multifaceted and there’s plenty of blame to go around within the management and also within the governor’s office. However, in the wake of the announcement of summer programming cancellation, I can see who is getting hit by the worst of this and it’s certainly not the management. Although Mr. Hogan did not sign the bill, it became law nonetheless. He can certainly make up for his obvious mistake by allocating the funding from HB 1404. The governor cannot possibly claim to support the arts without taking action on this issue.
