Congressman Rothman: Support for Public Broadcasting is Critical

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Steve Rothman (D-NJ) has been a proud member of the Congressional Public Broadcasting Caucus and plans on continuing to be part of this caucus in the 112th Congress. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) is a private, non-profit corporation that supports public television and radio stations, such as the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and National Public Radio (NPR), which are owned by local community organizations, universities, and state and municipal authorities.

"It is critical that Congress continues to support funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), an organization that consistently produces excellent programming for all age groups on news, current affairs, arts, and science," said Congressman Rothman. "Defunding CPB will significantly hurt National Public Radio news stations in less affluent areas because those communities rely on the vital federal funds set aside for public broadcasting. I'm committed to making sure that this important service continues."
