Statement on the Proposed Federal Budget for Fiscal Year 2018

Sunday, May 07, 2017 6:14 PM | Anonymous
The Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. strongly opposes the Fiscal Year 2018 budget proposed by the Trump Administration. The proposed budget eliminates funding for National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and National Heritage Areas program at the National Park Service. Elimination of these agencies and programs would greatly undercut the work of archivists and places preservation and access of records in peril.
