Sen. Jim Hammond, R-Post Falls, left, led a move to reject $150,000 in matching funds for Idaho Public Television to qualify for $450,000 in federal grants to preserve TV reception to six Idaho communities that otherwise will lose over-the-air signals in the digital changeover. Rep. George Eskridge, R-Dover, right, was among those supporting the funding, but it failed on a 13-7 vote Monday.
