Alec Baldwin Campaigns For More Arts Funding

Actor Alec Baldwin will ask Congress today to increase funding for the National Endowment for the Arts. The N-E-A is receiving about 147-million dollars this year... about 20-million less than its 2010 level. Steve Inskeep talks to Baldwin about his latest funding push, which kicked off last night with a lecture at the Kennedy Center for the advocacy group "Americans for the Arts."
