>For anyone who thinks NPR/PBS is a worthwhile expenditure of $1.12/year of
>their taxes, a petition follows. If you sign, please forward on to others,
>such as to everybody in your email address book (not back to me). If not,
>please don't kill it -- send it to the email address listed here:
>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, the 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 1. In
>the instance of the Corporation of Public Broadcasting,the bill determines
>the funding for the next three years. When this issue comes up in 1996, the
>funding will be determined for fiscal years 1996-1998.
>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 heard.
>Please add your name to this list 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 50th, 100th, 150th, etc. signer of this
>petition,please forward a copy to If that
>address is inoperative, please send it to 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.
