Contact Your Senators, Representative and Tell Them to Support the Senate-Passed Library State Grants Funding Level

On Tuesday, October 24, the U.S. Senate passed the fiscal year (FY) 2008 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations bill, which contains funding for several library-related programs. The House passed a bill in July. Conferees will soon meet to reconcile the differences in the bills.

Urgent Action needed: The Senate-passed bill contains $171,500,000 for the Grants to State Library Agencies program within the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). Please contact your Senators and Representative and tell them to support the Senate-passed funding level.

More information is available at the Legislative Action Center, including talking points and more detailed funding information.
