Please sign your name to this list if you want to help save NPR and PBS.

   On NPR's Morning Edition last week, Nina Tottenberg said that if the
Supreme Court supports Congress, it is in effect the end of the National
Public Radio (NPR), NEA & the Public Broadcasting System (PBS). PBS, NPR
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 not worthwhile. 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. 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. The Senate and House propriations
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. 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 and forward it to friends who believe in
what this stands for. This list will be forwarded to the President of the
United States and the Vice President of the United States. This petition is
being passed around the Internet. Please add your name to it so that
funding can be maintained for the NEA, NPR & PBS.

HOW TO SIGN & FORWARD: IT'S EASY: Please keep this petition rolling.

Do not reply to me. Please sign and forward to others to sign. If you
prefer not to  sign, please send to the e-mail address indicated below.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT DUPLICATES. This is being forwarded to several people at
once to add their names to the petition. It won't matter if many people
receive the same list as the names are being managed.

   This is 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.

   ****If you happen to be the 150th, 200th, 250th, etc. signer of this
petition, please forward a copy to:

wein2688 at blue.univnorthco.edu

   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!
