>>TUESDAY, JUNE 24 is the next milestone in this year's NEA,NEH,IMS budget
>>process. On that day the entire House Appropriations Committee will
>>convene for its mark-up hearing.
>>
>>Yesterday the Interior Subcommittee of Appropriations affirmed the plan of
>>Sub-Committee Chair Ralph Regula (R-OH) to leave the NEA with only $10
>>million for next year. Sidney Yates (D-IL) was successful in his motion to
>>strike wording that stated that the funds were for the sole purpose of
>>"orderly closure", but his additional motion to add $89.5 million back in
>>the budget failed. The votes of the sub-committee members are recorded
>>below. (+ indicates support for the NEA and - indicates a vote against).
>>
>>As the case moves to the full Appropriations Committee for markup on the
>>24th (or 26th) it will be important for you to contact your Representative
>>if he or she sits on the committee. The contact Information below is
>>ordered by state for easy access. Again +++++ and ----- refers to the vote
>>already taken in the sub-committee.
>>
>>Although the sub-committee vote was along party lines, it is important to
>>note that many Republicans ARE supportive of our cultural endowments and
>>many Democrats have traditionally voted AGAINST public funding in this
>>arena. Representative Lazio (R-NY) is gathering Republican signatures for
>>a letter to be sent to House Speaker Gingrich in support of funding for
>>the Arts. 26 House Republicans have already signed. The next edition of
>>AAUSA will contain the list so that these Representatives may be properly
>>thanked. Meanwhile feel free to contact your Republican Representative to
>>urge them to sign Rep. Lazio's letter.
