House Approves Amendment to Cut NEA Funding

Posted on: Feb 17, 2011

8 votes.  That was the narrow vote margin of 217 to 209 by which the House approved Rep. Tim Walberg’s amendment to cut an additional $20.5 million from the already reduced budget of the National Endowment for the Arts. We were so close. All but 3 Democrats voted against the funding cut. Only 23 out of 241 Republicans voted against the arts funding cut.

HR 1
Walberg, R-Mich., amendment that would reduce funding for grants and administration at the National Endowment for the Arts by $20.6 million.
Adopted in Committee of the Whole by a vote of 217-209:

Republicans
214-22
Democrats
3-187
