Federal Funding

New proposal would eliminate federal funding for public broadcasting

Jul 17, 2012

Tomorrow, Wednesday, July 18, the powerful House Labor, Health and Human Services (LHHS) Appropriations Subcommittee will meet to recommend funding for public broadcasting stations.  Draft recommendations were released earlier today proposing a phased elimination of all federal funding for America’s local public television and radio stations. We need your help TODAY! Yesterday, we asked advocates of 170 Million Americans for Public Broadcasting to call their Members of Congress who sit on this subcommittee.
