       Save Sesame Street from being cancelled!!!!!!

This is a petition to save Sesame Street.  ALL YOU DO IS ADD YOUR NAME
TO THE LIST AT THE BOTTOM, 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 commitees each have 13 subcommitees
with jurisdiction over many programs and agencies.  Each  subcommitee
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 again, 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  programsis 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, the House of
Representatives and Congress.

If you happen to be the 50th, 100th, 150th, etc. signer of this
petition, please forward to:   

kubi7975 at

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 alive.
Thank you.
