One Percent Rescissions for NEA and NEH

posted by April 16, 2006

As part of hurricane relief efforts, Congress has approved a 1 percent across-the-board rescission (or reduction) to all fiscal year 2006 appropriations, except for emergency spending and veterans programs. Thus, programs with approved budgets, such as the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, will see a retroactive budget cut of 1 percent.
