the proposed budget will be eliminating the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the humanities.
As reported by the Alliance of American Museums:
“On Thursday, March 16, the Trump Administration formally proposed eliminating the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) in its preliminary budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2018.
In her March 16 statement, Alliance President and CEO Laura Lott noted “It is Congress—not the President—that will ultimately determine funding levels for these vital agencies.” Since then, thousands of advocates have sent letters of support for these agencies to their members of Congress.”
