In NPR Morning Edition, Nina Totenberg said that if the
Supreme Court supports Congress, it is in effect the end of NEA
(National Endowment for the Arts). This situation creates great
concerns about Congressional funding for creative arts in America, since
NEA provides major support for NPR (National Public Radio) & PBS (Public
Broadcasting System), and numerous other creative and performing arts.
If NEA is lost or weakened, our lives are similarly diminished. 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 favor of what this stands for Every 50th person
has a second set of instructions below to make sure the petition gets to
the people who count in the decision making process.

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.

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.


This way we can keep track of the lists and organize them. Forward this
to everyone you know, and help us to keep these programs alive. Thank
you. NOTE: It is preferable that you SELECT the entirety of this letter
and then COPY it into a new outgoing message, rather than simply
forwarding it. In your new outgoing message, add your name to the
bottom of the list, then send it on. Or if option is available, do a
