Pelosi Statement on Passage of Legislation Prohibiting Federal Funding of NPR

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today after House Republicans voted to prohibit funding of National Public Radio. Republicans also unanimously opposed a Democratic measure to ensure that public broadcast networks continue receiving funds to disseminate AMBER Alerts regarding abducted children:

"Defunding public radio may fulfill a Republican campaign promise, but it does not create jobs and it does nothing to reduce the deficit. What's more, it could endanger our children -- as every House Republican voted to halt funding for radio networks that play a crucial role in alerting the public to missing and abducted children.

"Republicans must join Democrats to create jobs, strengthen the middle class, and responsibly reduce the deficit."
