Some prominent arts and cultural groups could be in for a major funding cut. A bill working its way through Congress could slash funding for the National Endowment for the Arts to its lowest level since the 1970s.

If a House appropriations bill is approved, Congressman Brian Higgins says National Endowment for the Arts funding would fall to $75 million, about half as much as in 2013. The South Buffalo Democrat says the cuts are driven by politics.
