(apologies to those who receive cross-posts)

1. Good news on NEH Vote
2. SENATE MARKUP OF NEA BILL TO COME THIS WEEK
3. Senate Appropriations Committee contact information
==================================================================

1. This evening the House overwhelmingly REJECTED Steve Chabot's (R-OK)
bid to end all NEH funding. The vote was over 3:1 in favor of the agency.
One must still wonder how a clean vote on NEA funding might have gone had
it been allowed!

2. Meanwhile the NEA bid now moves to The Senate Appropriations Committee
where the schedule has been moved up. The plan seems now to "mark up"
Interior spending (including NEA, NEH, etc) THIS WEEK !!! Please
check the contact list below to see if any of YOUR Senators sit on this
important committee. Let them know that those in YOUR state CARE about a
NATIONAL Commitment to the arts.
======================================================================

3. Contact Information for the Senate Appropriations Committee:

(note: I do my best to have accurate information BUT the various online
Congressional directories have loads of conflicting information. So if you
spot anything on this or others of my listings that needs correction,
please let me know and I can at least work towards getting MY database
accurate!)

As always, the following listing is ordered by state for easy access. The
percentage indicates a rough indication of arts support in the past.
