House Democrats on Tuesday unveiled a bill that would add funding for major arts programs that President Trump had sought to cut or eliminate altogether.
The bill funds the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Both would receive $167.5 million, an increase of $12.5 million from current spending.
The article goes on to state the following:
House Democrats also added $2.2 million to the budget of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Trump proposed eliminating the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities in his 2020 budget. He prosed cutting the Kennedy Center’s budget by $1.6 million.
Very excited to see House Interior bill recommends $167.5 mil. for National Endowment for the Arts – an increase of $12.5 mil. The exact amount pursued at our National Arts Action Summit in March #ArtsAdvocacy works!
