President's Proposed Budget Eliminating National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting

By Marc Jacobson and Steven H. Richman

At the January meeting of the Executive Committee of the NYSBA Section on Entertainment Arts & Sports Law (EASL), there was a discussion regarding reports that federal funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting would be cut or eliminated. In response, the Executive Committee unanimously adopted a resolution opposing the elimination of that funding.

Now that the President has submitted his budget for the upcoming fiscal year, NYSBA procedures allow the EASL Section to draft correspondence reflecting the January resolution, which will be reviewed by the State Bar, and then sent to the New York State Congressional Delegation, the Senate and House Leadership and the White House.
