hat tip: sundance

the stimulus money set aside for the national endowment for the arts – eliminated by the senate after republican whining – was eventually restored in committee and is part of the final bill president obama will sign in denver on tuesday. forty percent of the money will go directly to state arts agencies and regional arts organizations, while the remaining sixty percent will go to individual arts projects.

all thanks in no small part to new york's louise m. slaughter, wisconsin's david obey, and robert redford.
