Subj: Arts Funding Petition -- IMPORTANT!
Date: Sat, 20 Jan 1996 23:47:10 -0500

Subject: Arts Funding Petition
>
> This is a petition to show support for funding of the arts, which is being
> circulated via the internet.
>
> To Add Your Name to this list, copy this message onto a new piece of mail
and
> type in your name.
>
> PBS, NPR (National Public Radio), and the arts are facing major cutbacks in
> funding. In spite of the efforts of each station to reduce spending
> costs and streamline their services, the government officials believe
> that the funding currently going to these programs is too large a portion
> of funding for something which is seen as "unworthwhile". 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 in total.
> 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 commitees each have 13
> subcommitees with jurisdiction over many programs and agencies. Each
> subcommitee 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. In the instance of the Corporation of Public Broadcasting,
> the bill determines the funding for the next three years. When this issue
> comes up in 1996, the funding will be determined for fiscal years
> 1996-1998.
>
> 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 if you believe in what we stand
> for. This list will be forwarded to the President of the United States,
> the Vice President of the United States, and Representative Newt
> Gingrich, who is the instigator of the action to cut funding to these
> worthwhile programs.
>
> If you happen to be the 50th, 100th, 150th, etc. signer of this petition,
> please forward a copy to wein2688@-----. If that address
> is inoperative, please send it to kubi7975@-----. 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.
