Subcommittees to save, cut or kill library funding

Subcommittees to save, cut or kill library funding | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

"After months of advocacy around the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and the Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) program “Dear Appropriator” letters, the appropriations process has moved into the hands of two key House and Senate Appropriations Subcommittees. This places the fate of critical library funding programs in the hands of fewer than three dozen members of Congress from 25 states.
 
That makes now the right time to contact the offices of these critical Subcommittee members to explain how essential LSTA and IAL funding are to communities across the country. If your Representative in the House and/or your Senators sit on the all-important “Labor HHS” Subcommittees, please ask them to fund LSTA at $186.6 million and IAL at $27 million in FY 2018. As a constituent of one of these few, key Members of Congress you have the real power to help save IMLS and keep LSTA and IAL from being cut or eliminated."


Advocacy is needed now as a subcommittee is meeting this week of July 10!
