Amendment #35 to cut IMLS & LSTA defeated in House!

The Amendment #35 to HR 1, the Continuing Resolution to the FY2011 budget, was defeated!  Representative Garrett (R-NJ), who introduced the amendment has indicated that he will not push for a vote on the amendment.  This means that funding for the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), including Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds, will remain intact for the rest of FY2011.  For more details, please see the District Dispatch posting.

Thank you to everyone who contacted their representative to voice your opinion about this critical cut!
