Good News

The good news, according to AAM, is that the Senate Appropriations Committee for the Interior, which funds NEA, NEH and historic preservation programs, has unveiled a funding bill for FY12 that restores $8 million for Save America’s Treasures, which has not received funding since FY10. The bad news is that the bill, which also proposes $155 million each for NEA and NEH, will likely face numerous amendments during Committee consideration. As the happy recipient of an SAT grant I can testify to the importance of this program and would urge American readers to write to their Member of Congress to support restoration of the scheme.
