CARSON STATEMENT ON FUNDING FOR NPR
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman André Carson released the following statement today in response to the House vote to end federal funding for National Public Radio:
"Republicans in the House approved legislation today that according to the Congressional Budget Office will produce no savings for the taxpayer and will not reduce the deficit. It will hurt the 900 public radio stations across the country and endanger an estimated 9,000 jobs.
"The vote to end federal funding for public radio stations across the country is just the latest attempt at legislation that completely disregards the most important issue facing Americans – creating jobs."
