Congress approves $167.5 million budget for NEA in 2010

Posted on: October 29, 2009

On Wednesday (10/28) the Chronicle of Higher Education reported, “A compromise spending bill approved by Congressional negotiators on Tuesday sets the 2010 fiscal-year budgets for the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts at $167.5-million each, a $25-million total increase over the appropriations for the two endowments in 2009. The National Endowment for the Arts appropriation is a 3.8-percent increase over the $161.3-million President Obama proposed in his budget, but the money for the National Endowment for the Humanities falls short of the $171.3-million the president proposed for the agency.”
