President Obama will sign the final version of the $787 billion economic stimulus bill into law today, a major milestone in his early presidency. The bill includes $50 million in direct funding for the National Endowment for the Arts. Yet the fate of this funding was far from secure during the final days of deliberation in the House and Senate last week.  KBOO’s Frank Reynolds spoke with Eloise Damrosch, executive director of the Regional Arts and Culture Council, and Chris D’Arcy, director of the Oregon Arts Commission, about the arts funding in the bill and what it means for arts organizations going forward.

 Hosted by: Abe Proctor and Joe Uris.

Several listeners have let us know that they thought we were too hard on President Obama last week. Give him a break, they said. He's only been on the job a little while.

 This week we aim to clear the air. Let's start by saying unequivocally that we're still in the president's camp, emphatically so. But we're still going to do what we said we would during the campaign -- call for Obama to do the right thing.
