Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are demanding that the management of the Kennedy Center explain themselves after announcing the furlough of employees – after a controversial $25 million provision in the CARES Act coronavirus stimulus was meant to keep staffers employed. After Democrats came under fire for successfully pushing for the center’s bailout, the organization announced that it is furloughing nearly 60 percent of its full-time administrative staff from April 6 to at least May 10, and that this is “apart from the 725 hourly and part-time employees already impacted.”
