"NEH CONGRESSIONAL UPDATE"
0000-00-00 until 0000-00-00
National Endowment for the Humanities
Washington, DC, USA United States of America

Congress has completed action on the FY 2000 Interior Appropriations bill, which funds the NEH, and has sent the legislation to the President for his signature. The bill includes an increase of $5 million in the agency's funding, bringing the NEH budget total to $115.7 million. If the increase remains, this would represent the first increase that Congress has provided the Endowment in four years, and it would be spread across several program areas. The final budget figure is still uncertain, however, because the President is likely to veto the bill due to environmental and other provisions. The NEH, like most other federal agencies, is currently funded through a continuing resolution, which expires Nov. 10.

In other Capitol Hill matters important to the Endowment's interests, earlier this week the Senate's Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions approved seven Presidential nominees for the National Council on the Humanities. It is hoped that the full Senate will approve the nominations before Congress adjourns for the year.

By Michael Bagley, Director of Governmental Affairs
