As you might have heard, there’s a few bills currently in congress could potentially be very detramental to publicly funded broadcasting. They are proposing to cut funding from public broadcasting this year, preventing public radio stations from using federal funds to purchase NPR programming and also eliminating public funding for the Corporation of Public Broadcasting. It has currently passed through the House of Representatives and will soon go to the Senate. If passed, it will cut off 170 million people from public broadcasting services.
TAKE ACTION HERE by sending an e-mail to your representative in Congress asking them to stand up for public broadcasting funding. Do it, you know you can’t live without NPR. Via 170MillionAmericans.org
