Public Radio and State Governments. Volume 2: The Statutes.
The second volume on state government involvement in public radio contains statutes of the 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, that affect public radio and television. The compilation is up-to-date as of January 1980 and includes not only laws, but also relevant gubernatorial promulgations and formal state agency regulations, where appropriate. In a few cases, earlier versions of current laws are included in order to make the current law comprehensive and understandable. Most of the statutes serve to authorize state agencies to become involved in public broadcasting. A few statutes deal with subsidiary matters, such as the tax-exempt status of public broadcasting stations. For a more comprehensive analysis of state government involvement in public broadcasting, see Public Radio and State Governments. Volume 1: Description and Analysis. (Author/CHC)
