Senate Confirms NEA Chairman Today
June 11, 2014
Hi Chuck, Today, the U.S. Senate unanimously approved by voice vote the nomination of Dr. Jane Chu to be the next chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts. This ends the nearly 18 month vacancy at this important agency.
The Arts Action Fund thanks all of you for sending letters to your Senators to bring this nomination to the floor as quickly as possible. We especially thank and congratulate our Nevada members who sent letters to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to expedite her confirmation. It worked!
We’ve seen support for Dr. Chu’s nomination across both sides of the aisle. Americans for the Arts President and CEO Robert Lynch praised Dr. Chu for her “valuable perspectives of multi arts understanding, top management skills, and deep philanthropic knowledge.”
We appreciate your continued support. With your dedication, we continue to build political influence to ensure bipartisan support for the arts.
