It's not too late to save the Humanities Council

Posted: Updated:

Guam - A bill proposed by the U.S. House of Representatives Interior Subcommittee that would put an end to a long-time local non-profit group has yet to be voted on.

Guam Humanities Council executive director Kim Kihleng says the bill that threatens to cut the National Endowment for Humanities Budget by half was discussed on house floor, but a vote was not taken today and the House is in recess for August.

This is good news as congress members will be going back to their respective districts to talk with constituents.

As we reported earlier, the Guam Humanities Council is pleading with the local community to save the non-profit as well as the remaining 55 humanities councils throughout the nation and territories.

Kihleng says she's received word that Guam had a strong presence in online opposition efforts.

It's not too late to log on. Visit www.guamhumanitiescouncil.org and provide your name, email and mailing address which will be forwarded to Congresswoman Madeline Bordallo who's already showed her support in opposition of the measure.
