Minnesota lawmakers reject proposal to zero-out pubcasting

Both chambers of the Minnesota State Legislature have voted to restore general fund appropriations for public broadcasting, almost completely rolling back a proposal by Gov. Tim Pawlenty to zero-out $2.015 million in public media subsidies. Differences between House and Senate bills are yet to be reconciled, reports MinnPost's David Brauer, but the largest cut proposed for pubcasting totals $161,000 over the biennial budget cycle.
