Thread: Trumpís Budget Again Proposes Elimination of Public TV, Arts Funding

  1. #11
    Once again, I could care less about the stations, only their stream of taxpayer provided funding. Further, since many of the state owned colleges who really own these assets were able to sell the station spectrum in the last auction, at a profit, without returning anything to their benefactors, the need for this subsidy is clearly past, if it was ever justified at all. The end is near for CPB and the model of so-called public broadcasting. The change is long overdue and besides those who are employed at the stations, the impact will hardly be felt.

    That's really only for TV stations, and only one small college in Florida has done it. The federal funding for that program is in far more doubt than CPB funding. In many states, the stations are owned by public broadcasting authorities, not colleges. That's the case in South Carolina, where the current budget director worked most recently. It's a department that reports to the governor, not the department of education. So it's a bit higher up than what you're talking about.

    Once again, the proper course is repeal. Otherwise, Congress will continue to fund, as they have for 50 years. It's already funded to the next election.
