Preservation funding in peril

We're all tightening the screws on our budgets, watching our bank balances, and sitting on our wallets. Almost all of us would agree that the government has to do the same, and earlier this month, President Obama released his 2011 budget request. If passed it would eliminate funding for Save America's Treasures and Preserve America, and cut funding for National Heritage Areas by 50%.

Some would argue that if something has to go, this is it. We would argue that sacrificing the future for the present is never a good idea.

Is there a better way? Let us, and your elected officials, know.
