From Citizens for the Arts in PA (2/11/11):
The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) faces a reduction of approximately $12 million to the current year's appropriation in a Continuing Resolution (CR) appropriations package that will be presented on the floor of the U.S. House of Representative early next week. This would bring the current year appropriation to $155 million. Deeper cuts could be made to the NEA appropriation through the inclusion of amendments that can be offered to the CR on the House floor.
Americans for the Arts and Citizens for the Arts in Pennsylvania is urging you to take two minutes today to send an e-mail to your members of the Pennsylvania Congressional delegation expressing your concern about additional cuts beyond those offered in the CR. Americans for the Arts has created an e-mail template for your use to make it easier to contact your Representatives.
Take two minutes, right now, to send that e-mail.
