Action Alert Update on Proposed Funding Cuts for Public Broadcasting

Public broadcasting’s viewers and listeners across the country have responded overwhelmingly and made their voices heard in Washington with phone calls, e-mails and even personal visits.

Thirteen has just learned that three members of Congress, Rep. David Obey (D-WI), Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) and Rep. Jim Leach (R-IA) will be offering a bipartisan amendment on the House floor this week to restore funding to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The amendment is expected to come to a vote on the House floor this week.

Please contact your Member of Congress as soon as possible and let your voice be heard on the Obey-Lowey-Leach amendment to restore funding for public broadcasting.  For your members’ phone information, visit www.thirteen.org.
