House votes to permanently bar NPR from receiving federal funds

House votes to permanently bar NPR from receiving federal funds 17 Mar 2011 In a mostly party-line vote, the House of Representatives passed legislation Thursday that would permanently bar NPR from receiving federal funds, the latest escalation in conservatives' campaign against the broadcaster. Republicans already voted to eliminate all federal support for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for the current fiscal year, which helps public stations buy NPR programming, but the provision was not incorporated into the continuing agreements that have kept the government funded. The latest vote was 228 to 192, with one lawmaker voting "present."
