GOP members of Congress will help save pubcasting, APTS Butler says

APTS President Patrick Butler told The Hill today (March 8) that GOP members of Congress are signaling support for continued public broadcasting funding. "Republicans in both the House and the Senate want to stand with us and give us a good result in the end," Butler said, but declined to name individuals. "It's not going to be a unanimous vote, but I do think if there ever comes an up-or-down vote on public broadcasting itself, we'll wind up with a bipartisan majority in favor of continuing our funding." Although, he noted, "I'm not sure at what level."
