Two year sunset on state agency status.
A bill to allow the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority to continue as a state agency for another two years, barely passed the House.
O.E.T.A. Executive Director John McCarroll says lawmakers might eventually kill state agency status or the network.
"It's been a trend over the years, we've seen the numbers go up on those who are opposed to O.E.T.A. I think what is very important is that our friends continue to step forward," McCarroll told reporters.
Under the bill on its way to Governor Fallin, O.E.T.A. is reauthorized to continue as a state agency until its next sunset review in 2014.
McCarroll says the crucial matter of state funding for O.E.T.A is still under review by lawmakers.
