Funding for NPR/PBS/NEA (Off Topic - Sorry)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
At least it's not a virus.  Thought this might interest some of the
politically minded members of the list.

------------------------------

On NPR's Morning Edition recently, Nina Totenberg said that if the Supreme
Court supports Congress, it is in effect the end of the National Public
Radio (NPR), NEA & the Public Broadcasting System PBS). PBS, NPR 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, some
government officials believe that the funding currently going to these
programs is too large a portion of funding for something which is seen as
not worthwhile. 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.

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. The Senate
and House appropriations committees each have 13 subcommittees with
jurisdiction over many programs and agencies.
Each subcommittee 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. 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.


Hello, friends.

I had this forwarded to me this weekend, and it seems worth the minimal
effort to me.  Thanks for your time!

Please add your name to this list and forward it to friends who believe in
what this stands for. This list will be forwarded to the President of the
United States and the Vice President of the United States. This petition is
being passed around the Internet.  Please add your name to it so that
funding can be maintained for the NEA, NPR & PBS.

HOW TO SIGN & FORWARD: IT'S EASY:

Please keep this petition rolling. Do not reply to me.
Please sign and forward to others to sign. If you prefer not to sign, please
send to the e-mail address indicated below. DON'T WORRY ABOUT DUPLICATES.
This is being forwarded to several people at once to add their names to the
petition. It won't matter if many people receive the same list as the names
are being managed. For anyone who thinks NPR/PBS is a worthwhile
expenditure, a petition follows.
