White House proposes to eliminate National Endowment for the Arts
This morning, the White House released its executive budget proposal, which calls for the elimination of all funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
This is the very beginning of the budget process. It’s important to note that the President does not set the federal budget, Congress does. An executive budget proposal is exactly just that, a proposal. But at the same time, the Administration’s proposal can be influential to members of Congress.
The South Carolina Arts Alliance has published several talking points and action steps for arts advocates.
