Tourism Dollars For Cultural Non-Profits

From Americans for the Arts:
On Tuesday, September 8, 2009, the U.S. Congress is scheduled to return from their summer recess and the Senate will begin consideration of S. 1023, the Travel Promotion Act of 2009. The House of Representatives is expected to take up this legislation later this year. Please tell your local senator to support inclusion of the nonprofit arts and culture sector in this bill!

The bill advocates spending money on tourism to attract people from around the world to visit America. That would be a good thing. Let's see some of that money go to the non-profit sector that knows how to make the best of what money they get. They promote America too.
