An Amendment to Cut Arts Funding was Defeated in House

The amendment, sponsored by Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-WI), proposing funding cuts to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) by $23 million each was defeated on Wednesday (July 18) by a vote of 114 to 297. 

Americans for the Arts calls the action a victory for arts advocacy.
