After fielding more advocates on the Hill than ever before, APTS reported that Congress had reduced the amount it will rescind from this year’s CPB funding. Instead of cutting $10 mil to $15 mil, Congress applied a smaller cut of 0.65% or $2.37 million. APTS called it a “tremendous victory.” Congress also agreed to lay out its largest amount for the digital transition — $48.7 million — in addition to $43.5 million for PTFP, which will spend much of its budget this year on digital.
