Support public broadcasting.

A House Appropriations subcommittee led by Representative Ralph Regula (R-Ohio) has voted to eliminate all federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting within two years. The CPB has an annual budget of $400 million. These funds constitute about 15% of the public broadcasting industry's total revenue.

If you think NPR, PBS, and programs like Sesame Street and Reading Rainbow are worthwhile, please sign a petition to support public broadcasting.
