Vote Expected on Legislation Calling for Termination of Federal Arts Education Programs

May 24, 2011

From Americans for the Arts:

This week, legislation proposed by Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) calling for the termination of 43 education programs at the U.S. Department of Education, including arts education, is expected to be brought to a vote this week in the House Education and Workforce Committee. Americans for the Arts is working closely with congressional staff to provide members of Congress with talking points on the importance of arts education to students and the critical role this program has had in supporting arts education throughout the country.
