IdahoPTV loses some state funds this year, but gains a bit in FY11
Idaho Public Television has survived a proposed phase-out of its state funding (Current, Jan. 25, 2010) and actually ended up with a little boost. Gov. Butch Otto had asked the Legislature to drop the station's nearly $2 million annual funding gradually over four years. Instead, in its appropriation signed by Otter this week, IdahoPTV loses $141,000 this fiscal year, receives an appropriation of $2.4 million in FY11, and its full-time equivalent positions are limited to 33.
