                     Arts Action Alert - Take Action Now!

                              February 15, 2011

Dear Alan:
We've just learned that two members of Congress have introduced amendments
to further cut, and terminate, funding from the National Endowment for the
Arts during consideration of the FY 2011 appropriations measure.
As you may recall from our E-Alerts last week, the U.S. House of
Representatives is considering major cuts to federal programs this week. In
the bill they're considering, the NEA will be reduced from $167.5 million to
$145 million.  Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI) has introduced an amendment to
further cut that amount by $20.5 milllion from the NEA budget.  Rep. Scott
Garrett (R-NJ) has introduced an amendment to terminate funding to the NEA
immediately in this fiscal year. Both amendments are in line to be
considered this week.
PLEASE take two minutes right now to contact Rep. Yvette D.
Clarke and request a vote against those amendments -- you can use our
customized E-Advocacy Center to send that message. 
Thank you for your arts advocacy!
