"Senate Efforts to Increase Funding for IMLS, NEA, and NEH"
1999-07-27 until 1999-07-27
American Association of Museums
Washington, , USA United States of America

In a surprising move, the U.S. Senate on July 27 is expected to begin considering the FY 2000 Interior Appropriations bill (S. 1292), which includes funding for the federal cultural agencies. During Senate floor debate on the bill, we expect Senators Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY) and Jack Reed (D-RI) to offer an amendment which would increase the budgets of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). At this time, it's uncertain how much the amendment would increase their funding levels. In addition, Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) may make efforts to increase the NEH only.

Please contact your Senators ASAP and urge them to support efforts to increase funding for ALL THREE cultural agencies (IMLS, NEA, and NEH) during consideration of the Interior Appropriations bill (S. 1292). As always, stress how funding from these agencies has helped you to serve your community. You can contact your Senators by calling the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Finally, please share your correspondence and any feedback you get with us. Thank you! Please contact us if you have any questions at (202) 289-9125.
