In addition to standard program maintenance items, this budget includes an appropriation of $1.59 million from the Economic Recovery Reserve Fund for Replacement Items. This amount includes $52,000 to purchase two field trucks, $929,900 to upgrade the television studio on campus in Pocatello (KISU) to digital technology, and $608,100 to upgrade rural translator stations to digital technology. This budget does not provide funding, at the present time, to upgrade the television studio on campus in Moscow (KUID) to digital technology. Instead, additional monies have been put into the digital upgrades for rural translators, since the federal government has mandated that all analog transmitters be turned off in February 2009. No such mandate exists for television studio equipment.
