Image for House Committee Approves Cuts in Arts Education Funding

Jun 22, 2011

On May 26, the House Education and Workforce Committee voted to approve Rep. Duncan Hunter's (R-CA) "Setting New Priorities in Educational Spending Act," otherwise known as House Bill H.R. 1891.  Arts in Education is listed among the 43 duplicative or inappropriate programs that will lose significant funding under the new legislation.  The bill marks the first attempt at reauthorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, more commonly referred to as "No Child Left Behind."  The full House of Representatives is expected to vote on the bill before their August recess.  Take action now and tell your local representative to oppose H.R. 1891.
