U.S. President George W. Bush on Monday told the U.S. Congress that he wants to substantially increase the amount of federal money that the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Endowment for the Arts receive. In his $2.4 trillion budget request for 2005, Bush recommended increasing the FCC's budget by $20 million, giving the agency a stipend of $293 million. In addition to the increase, Bush said he plans to push legislation that would slap a $500 million fee on broadcasters if they don't vacate their analog spectrum by 2006.
