FY12 House & Senate Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations Bills

Recent Activity

For FY12, the Senate Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations Subcommittee recommended funding the Arts in Education program at approximately the same level of funding – $27.5 million – currently administered by the U.S. Department of Education in FY11. The bill does not consolidate the Arts in Education program with other education programs as part of a broader funding package. The Obama Administration has proposed consolidation.

The House Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations Subcommittee eliminated funding for the Arts in Education program in FY12.
