We need the Senate to fully fund these programs in order to send a strong message back to the House. After Labor Day, we expect further attempts at funding cuts in the House when their appropriations bills come to the floor for a vote and be subject to a series of possible weakening funding and conservative social agenda amendments. We will send you another timely customized action alert at that time that targets your House members.
Last year, the arts community came together to help increase the NEA and NEH funding to a historic 15 percent increase to $207 million, first-time arts funding at the Department of Defense, and increases in education funding. Contact your Senators today. We need your help again to fend off cuts to arts programs at multiple federal agencies.
