Last Thursday by 8 votes the House approved a $43 million cut to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) FY2011 budget. This decrease will mean a decrease in NEA grants to New Jersey of $440,340.
This FY 2011 appropriations package will be presented to the Senate shortly, so please take two minutes to ask your Senator to vote against cuts to the NEA budget. Send a message directly to both your Representative and your Senator through our Action Arts Center, which is an easy and effective way to make your voice heard.
Please find us on Facebook for up-to-date information on the FY2011 appropriations package as the situation progresses.
