Please read this VERY IMPORTANT petition! PBS, like NPR, the NEA and other
cultural institutions now under attack by the organized right, is not beyond
criticism. One need only stop to consider what the very terrain of cultural
debates would look like without these institutions, however, to realize how
important it is to save them.

I hope you will then sign this petition and pass it along to everyone you
know.  We've got to be active in saving these important institutions!
Please sign!  Thanks!

NOTE: The easiest way to forward this petition is to copy the entire
text and paste it into a new mail message.  Then add your name to the end
and send it on to your recipients.  Thanks.

This is for anyone who thinks NPR/PBS is a worthwhile expenditure of
$1.12/year of their taxes (as opposed to, say, Newt Gingrich's salary?), a
petition follows. If you sign, please forward on to others (not back to me).

If not, please don't kill it -- send it to the email address listed


PBS, NPR (National Public Radio), and the arts are facing major cutbacks in
funding.  In spite of the efforts of each station to reduce spending costs
and streamline their services, some government officials believe that the
funding currently going to these programs is too large a portion of funding
for something which is seen as unworthwhile".  Currently, taxes from the
general public for PBS equal $1.12 per person per year, and the National
Endowment for the Arts equals $.64 a year in total.

A January 1995 CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll indicated that 76% of Americans
wish to keep funding for PBS, third only to national defense and law
enforcement as the most valuable programs for federal funding.

Each year, the Senate and House Appropriations committees each have 13
subcommittees with jurisdiction over many programs and agencies. Each
subcommittee passes its own appropriation bill.  The goal each year is to
have each bill signed by the beginning of the fiscal year, which is October

The only way that our representatives can be aware of the base of support
for PBS and funding for these types of programs is by making our voices

Please add your name to this list and forward it to friends if you believe
in what we stand for. This list will be forwarded to the President of the
United States, the Vice President of the United States, and Representative
Newt Gingrich, who is the instigator of the action to cut funding to these
worthwhile programs.

If you happen to be the 150th, 200th, 250th etc. signer of this petition,
please forward a copy to: wein2688@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx  If that address is
inoperative, please send it to:  kubi7975@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx This way we
can keep track of the lists and organize them.

Forward this to everyone you know, and help us to keep these programs alive.

Thank you.
