Report on New York Times By ROBIN POGREBIN

The House approved $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts on Wednesday as part of its economic stimulus bill. The money is not in the version in the Senate, where it is expected to go to the floor on Monday. “We hope Congress can come to a sensible consensus as the bill is prepared for its final vote,” said Robert L. Lynch, the president and chief executive of Americans for the Arts, a lobbying group. “The arts are essential to the health and vitality of our communities, and it is fiscally sound policy to invest in our nation’s arts infrastructure.”
