>Subject: Support PBS!!
>A serious petition, add your name and send it on. 
>This is a petition to save Sesame Street.  All you do is add your name 
>on the list and then forward it to everyone you know.  The only time you 
>send it to the included address is if you are the 50th, 100th, etc. 
>Send it on to everyone you know.
>PBS, NPR (National Public Radio), 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, the government officials believe 
>that the funding currently going to these programs is too large a 
>portion of funding for something which is seen as "unworthwhile."
>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 in 
>total. 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. 
>Each year, the Senate and House Appropriations 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.  In the instance of the Corporation of Public Broadcasting, 
>the bill determines the funding for the next three years.  When this 
>issue comes up in 1996, the funding will be determined for fiscal years 
>1996-1998.  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 if you believe in what we stand for. 
>This list will be forwarded to the President of the United States, the 
>Vice President of the United States, and Representative Newt Gingrich, 
>who is the instigator of the action to cut funding to these worthwhile 
>If you happen to be the 50th, 100th, 150th, etc. signer of this 
>petition, please forward to :
>      kubi7975@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 live.
>Thank you.
