OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma lawmaker is pushing for an end to state funding of public television.
Representative Leslie Osborn plans to introduce a bill in 2012 to eliminate state appropriations for the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA).
The proposal would reduce the funding by 20 percent each year for the next five years.
Osborn says she believes the money for OETA should come from the private sector.
OETA received about $3.8 million, less than 40 percent of its budget, in state funding this fiscal year.
