Monahan Featured in Playbill on Legislation Aimed at Helping Non-Profit Theaters
Jessica Monahan, a policy advisor in firm’s Legislative & Public Policy practice, was featured in the Playbill article, “The STAGE Act: How It Could Save Non-Profit Theatres, and How You Can Help,” where she spoke about the yet to be introduced legislation, which would provide relief to non-profit theaters that have struggled to recover after COVID-19.
The Supporting Theater and Generating Economic Activity (STAGE) Act proposes to provide $2.5 billion in federal funding over five years. “It's not just a one-time infusion of cash into the industry for recovery effort. It's a long-term investment in the industry that I think is very important and long overdue,” Monahan told Playbill.
