Senator Mikulski named Chair of Appropriations Committee

Late last week, Senator Mikulski was ratified as the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee. This is of significance to libraries because the Appropriations Committee writes bills to allocate funding to many agencies and programs, including Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funding and funds for school libraries.

In her remarks on the Senate floor, Mikulski stated that she intends to work with all members of the Senate to meet our national security needs, as well as our human needs, specifically mentioning education and the economy.

Feel free to use Capwiz to send a brief congratulations message to Senator Mikulski. You are encouraged to thank her for her past support of libraries and mention how your library helps to meet human needs.

For more information, including Mikulski’s complete remarks, please see her press release.
