(CNSNews.com) - The $2.2 trillion coronavirus aid bill that unanimously passed the Republican-controlled U.S. Senate on Wednesday and passed the House on a voice vote on Friday includes a provision giving an “additional amount” of $75,000,000 to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

“For an additional amount for ‘Corporation for Public Broadcasting,’ $75,000,000, to remain available through September 30, 2021, to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, including for fiscal stabilization grants to public telecommunications entities,” says language on page 746 of the 854-page bill.

The Washington Post and The Hill have reported that the entire bill will cost approximately $2.2 trillion. 

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting calls itself “the steward of the federal government’s investment in public broadcasting and the largest single source of funding for public radio, television and related online and mobile services.”
