Cabel calls urgent meeting of Knesset Economics Committee to discuss breach in IBA funding

Zionist Union MK Eitan Cabel who chairs the Knesset Economics Committee and committee member Prof. Yossi Yona have sent a letter to Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon complaining that the budget and arrangements bills that were passed during last week’s Knesset marathon lack any reference to the Finance Ministry’s obligation to fund the operation of the yet to be established new public broadcasting service to be known as the Israel Broadcasting Corporation as distinct from the Israel Broadcasting Authority which is now in liquidation.

The letter also notes that likewise there is no mention of financial resources that will enable the IBA to continue operating until the launch of the IBC.
