NEA Funding Petition



Below is an opportunity to support the arts, PLEASE READ. IT IS URGENT!

     On NPR Morning Edition this morning, Nina Tottenberg
said that if the Supreme Court supports Congress, it is in
effect the end of NEA. Then, there's the question of
Congressional funding: Funding for NPR/NEA & PBS.
PBS, NPR (National Public Radio), and the arts are
facing major cutbacks in funding. In spite of the
efforts of each station to reduce spending costs and
streamline their services, some government officials believe that
the funding currently going to these programs is too
large a portion of funding for something which is seen as
not worthwhile.

     Currently, taxes from the general public for PBS equal
$1.12 per person per year, and the National Endowment for the
Arts equals $.64 a year. A January 1995 CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll
indicated that 76% of Americans wish to keep funding for PBS,
third only to national defense and law enforcement as the most
Each year, the Senate and House Appropriations
committees each have 13 subcommittees with jurisdiction over many
programs and agencies. Each subcommittee passes the
appropriation bill.
The goal each year is to have each bill signed by the
beginning of the fiscal year, which is October 1.
The only way that our representatives can be aware of
the base of support for PBS and funding for these types
friends who believe in what this stands for. This list will
be forwarded to the President of the United States, the
Vice President of the United States, and Congressional leaders.

     This petition is being passed around the internet.
Please add your name to it so that funding can be
maintained for the NEA, NPR & PBS.
Please keep this petition rolling. Do not reply to
me. Please sign and forward to others to sign.
If you prefer not to sign please send to
the e-mail address indicated. This is being forwarded
to several people at once to add their names to the petition.
It won't matter if many people receive the same list
as the names are being managed. This is for anyone who thinks
NPR/PBS is a worthwhile expenditure of $1.12/year of their taxes.
