Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has vetoed a House Bill which provides funding to the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority. OETA operates 18 public television stations across the state. The bill would have extended funding for OETA through 2026; the current funding expires on July 1. Stitt called the educational TV system outdated and said tax dollars should not fund it. He also criticized some programs on the stations but did not provide specific examples of programs that he felt were inappropriate.
