CPB is on the block in first spending-cut bill of the year

Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) has proposed the first series of spending cuts in this year's newly GOP-controlled House – and eliminating CPB funding on the list. As the Washington Post's Federal Eye blog points out, "Brady chairs the Joint Economic Committee and is a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee – perches likely to put him at the center of the Congress's forthcoming debate on government spending and deficits." Brady calls his bill the Cut Unsustainable and Top-heavy Spending, or the CUTS Act.
