This is one of two FY 1999 supplemental appropriation bills for the
Idaho Educational Public Broadcasting System (IEPBS).

This bill appropriates personnel money for two existing but currently
unfunded positions. The positions are a digital television (DTV)
project manager ($41,500 salary & benefits) and a DTV engineer
($51,000 salary & benefits). These positions will begin coordinating
and implementing IEPBS' federally mandated transition to digital

The other IEPBS supplemental appropriates a total of $89,200 in
General Fund money. That bill includes $39,200 for a mid-year rent
increase on IEPBS' primary facility in Boise, and $50,000 in one-time
funding to respond to another federal mandate to vacate a certain
channel range, from which nine IEPBS translators broadcast, and
relocate those translators elsewhere on the spectrum.
