Pundits and politicians from both parties agree that while the 112th Congress may have averted an immediate plunge over the fiscal cliff through its New Years package of tax extenders and sequestration delays, this debate is nowhere near over.  That’s where the 113th Congress comes in.  With almost 100 new members of the House and Senate, there are a lot of new faces to meet, greet and persuade on the value of libraries.

Your voice is more important now than ever before.  Only you can help stop immediate and dramatic cuts to LSTA, IMLS and other critical funding programs. This webinar provides an update on the fiscal cliff / sequestration situation as well as the policy issues most likely to be considered in the coming year.  Perhaps most important, we tell you how best to speak up – and make a difference.
