When public television stations receive federal funds it ensures the stations are able to provide all types of programming to the community and everyone is able to gain access.
The United States Senate provided funding to public broadcasting stations in the Fiscal Year 2019 Labor, Health and Human Services Education Appropriations Bill.
On Aug. 23, Patrick Butler, president and CEO of America’s Public Television Stations, praised the US Senate for their agreement on funding in a statement.
