House subcommittee approves massive cuts for public broadcasting
Friday, June 10, 2005
In addition, the subcomittee also acted to eliminate federal money for the Corporation for Public Broadasting, a body designed to pass funds onto public broadcasters; starting with a 25 percent reduction next year, from $400 million to $300 million.
Overall, the cuts would signal the most dramatic cutback of public broadcasting the Congress created the CPB in 1967.
