Good news for libraries from Capitol Hill

The Senate Appropriations Committee gave libraries some good news in these tough economic times.  The Committee is recommending an increase to $157,266,000 for the LSTA Grants to States program and an increase to $13,200,000 for National Leadership Grants.  This is more than a $7 million increase over the President’s request for FY 2014.

Now this needs to pass on the Senate floor and prevail in the House-Senate conference for FY2014 appropriations.
