Stimulating the Stimulus

Americans for the Arts reports that the economic stimulus package passed by the House yesterday included $50 million in recovery funds to be distributed by the National Endowment for the Arts.

However, those funds have not been included in the draft economic stimulust package the Senate will be considering, so efforts continue apace to make that happen. Although California's Senators Boxer and Feinstein have been strong supporters of the arts in the past, if you feel strongly about this issue, you should make your views known to them right away.

The Americans for the Arts makes it easy for you to do on this page, where you simply enter your ZIP code and they provide ready made letters to your representatives that you need only sign and they will email on your behalf.
