S.492 - To Defund NPR and PBS

Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) recently sponsored a bill to end taxpayer subsidies for public broadcasting. Without this legislation, taxpayers will be forced to pay $430 million for NPR and PBS this year at a time when our nation is deeply in debt and there are thousands of private educational and entertainment programs available to Americans on television, radio, and the Internet. The senators checked in green below have agreed to cosponsor the bill to defund NPR and PBS. The rest have not.
