The ALA Washington is getting word from the Hill that a possible amendment to the House Financial Services Appropriations bill that would limit the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) ability to increase funding to the Federal E-rate programs has been withdrawn. Please see Monday’s District Dispatch post.
Sources in the House Democratic Leadership tell ALA that the majority chose not to proceed with the amendment due to widespread opposition from the library and school community.
Thank you to everyone that made calls to their House Member to defeat this amendment.
