The National Endowment for the Arts is expected to announce Thursday new grants totaling $40,000 for two prominent performance artists to whom NEA funds were rejected last year in a failed bid to placate the agency's political critics. The decision--reportedly reached last week by NEA Chairman John E. Frohnmayer--will bring to a nearly anticlimactic close one element of the ongoing arts endowment controversy. The content and timing of the announcement were confirmed by top NEA sources Tuesday.

In a surprisingly strong showing by critics of illegal immigration, the House on Thursday barely defeated a bid by an Orange County congressman to bar the National Endowment for the Arts from dispensing money to illegal immigrants. The parliamentary maneuver by Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) and Randy (Duke) Cunningham (R-San Diego) was prompted by an incident near Carlsbad last August, in which three San Diego performance artists handed out $10 bills to day laborers.

Four performance artists and a coalition of civil rights groups asked a Los Angeles federal judge Monday to declare unconstitutional legal wording requiring the National Endowment for the Arts to take account of "general standards of decency" in making its grants. The filing also asks for an injunction against enforcement of the decency clause.

The National Endowment for the Arts is facing new controversy over proposed grants to performers who were recently denied fellowships. Those awards are part of another developing controversy involving artists who served on an NEA grant review panel that has recommended money for projects in which they are directly involved. One member of an independent commission reviewing the NEA has labeled the endowment's conflict-of-interest policy "a sham."
