Congress approved the final FY 2006 Interior appropriations bill on July 29th, and the President signed it into law on August 2. The bill (H.R. 2361), which supports a number of cultural programs, was passed with an internal 0.476 percent across-the-board rescission. The National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts each received a $5 million increase on the House and Senate floors , which was reduced to a net increase of $4.4 million for the NEA and $4.3 million for the NEH after the rescission. Total FY 2006 funding for NEA currently stands at $125,660,000 and the NEH at $142,373,000. Should additional government-wide rescissions be imposed, these would almost certainly be applied to the Interior bill, further reducing funding for NEA, NEH and other programs.
