PORTNOW RESPONDS TO POSSIBLE NEA ELIMINATION

The budget proposal issued by President Donald Trump slashes a number of longstanding Federal line items.  Among them is the National Endowment for the Arts, which Trump has earmarked for elimination.

With the state of the arts in the balance, Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow has issued the following statement: 
“Love of music and the arts brings us together, and celebrates the richness of American culture and our spirit of curiosity and creativity. Music and art serve as one of America’s greatest exports, and support jobs for creators in cities, towns and rural areas across the country. The White House proposal to eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts is shortsighted and alarming. The modest support that we provide to music and the arts is returned many times over, whether measured in jobs and economic impact, or sheer cultural enrichment and introspection. The Recording Academy will ask Congress to maintain funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and renew our commitment to America’s creators.”
