04-30-2010: Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) circulated a "Dear Colleague" letter among his fellow senators in support of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). This letter is an opportunity for senators to make a statement of support for the NEA, and it has been four years since the last Dear Colleague in support of the NEA was circulated in the Senate. The letter, signed by 20 senators, calls for the NEA to be funded at $180 million for FY 2011, which would be $12.5 million above the agency's FY 2010 level.
