H. Res. 478
National Foundation on the Arts and Humanities Act of 1965
In previous years, legislation providing federal support for the arts had failed in the House, but on July 14, 1965, the House Education and Labor Committee reported H.R. 9460 which was similar to the bill the Senate had approved. Supporters of the bill ran into an obstacle when the House Rules Committee failed to grant the bill a rule for floor debate. Adam Clayton Powell (D-NY), chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, filed House Resolution 478 that by-passed the Rules Committee and made floor consideration of H.R. 9460 possible. The resolution was adopted by the House on September 13 by a vote of 260 to 114.
