Both Presidential Frontrunners Would Continue Federal Arts Funding; Gore Expresses Strong Support; Bush Expresses Qualified Support

In response to the question "Do you support federal subsidies for the arts?" -- asked of Presidential candidates by the ASSOCIATED PRESS (as reported by APINEWS) earlier this year, both the Republican frontrunner George W. Bush and the Democratic front runner, Al Gore affirmed public funding of the arts.

Gore expressed strong support for the arts, according to APINews, saying: "I strongly believe in encouraging and supporting the arts and would continue the current policy of support. The arts are an important part of our life and our history and should be supported.

Bush's response was somewhat more qualified. APINews quotes him as saying: "I believe we should continue federal funding for the arts, but give states a greater say in how the funds are spent. I don't believe we should spend public money to support obscene material or denigrate religion."
