> >
> >On NPR Morning Edition, Nina Totenberg 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 valuable programs for federal funding.
> >
> >Each year, the Senate and House Appropriations committees each have 13
> >subcommittees with jurisdiction over many programs and agencies. Each
> >subcommittee passes its own 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 of programs is by making our voices
> >heard.
> >
> >Please add your name to this list and forward it to 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 the Speaker Of
> >The House, the office of which has in the past been the instigator of the
> >action to cut funding to these worthwhile programs.
> >
> >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, a
> >petition follows.
> >
> >If you sign, please forward on to others. If not, please don't kill it -
> >send it to the e-mail address listed here:
