US House Appropriations Committee proposes $71 million cut to NEA
The U.S. House Appropriations Committee released its funding recommendations for fiscal year 2014, including a proposal to cut $71 million from the National Endowment for the Arts—a 49 percent reduction from fiscal year 2013.
If the House Appropriations Committee recommendation is passed by Congress and signed by the president, the NEA would be at its lowest level of funding since 1970 when adjusted for inflation.
