Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback wants to cut state aid to public TV and radio by 42% in the next two fiscal years. State policymakers allocated $1.04 million to Kansas pubcasters for fiscal 2013. Under the budget proposal unveiled by Republican Gov. Brownback, the total subsidy would drop to $600,000 annually in fiscal 2014 and 2015.
Gov. Sam Brownback proposed a state budget Thursday that would cease funding Kansas Public Broadcasting, which supports the state’s local public television and radio stations. The move would save $1.6 million.
