Oklahoma House preserves pubcasting money for two more years

By a vote of 53-28, the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Thursday (May 3) approved funding the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority for at least another two years, reports The Oklahoman. All nay votes were cast by Republicans, the newspaper noted, "several of whom mentioned a no vote would help their conservative rating that is compiled by different groups." The measure now goes to Gov. Mary Fallin for approval. Earlier this year, two bills had been introduced to zero-out OETA funding.
