Subject: Re: A Dumb Question about the NEH
If 80% of the NEH funds were transferred to state councils, I see absolutely
no way that DARE could survive. But it's not just DARE, it's ALL the big
projects: think about the Twain project at Berkeley, the biography project
at Princeton, the History of Cartography project here at the UW-Madison, and
the Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution, and the
AngloSaxon Manuscripts on Microfiche projects, both also here in Madison.
Not one of these could survive on money from a state council. It would be
nice to think that states might work together on projects like these, but
who really thinks that's a possibility? NEH grants work because they are
large enough to tackle major projects that simply can't be done any other
way. Please oppose the Kolbe amendment!
