Hello, Thank you for taking my call! I'm a constituent from [city/town] and I am calling to express my support for the National Endowment for the Humanities.

I am concerned that President Trump's budget blueprint called for the elimination of the NEH. I hope that the Representative/Senator will do everything they can to oppose it. Do you know what the Representative/Senator's position is on NEH?
