Before you vote on Tuesday be sure you know where your favored candidate stands on funding for the arts. The Americans for the Arts Action Fund PAC has produced the 2008 Congressional Arts Report Card to help you make arts-informed decisions at the ballot box. The report contains carefully evaluated legislative benchmarks that form a detailed arts record, including a numerical score and letter grade, for each Member of the House based on numerous arts and arts education issues. You can read additional analysis of Congressional arts-related votes, including state rankings and trends in their press release.
