LEGISLATION

The following bills are available and should be requested from your congressman: HR 6232, Higher Education Amendments of 1967 (Perkins Bill); Senate Bill Number 1122, Higher Education Amendments of 1967 (Morris Bill).

In a recent Washington Newsletter, the following statement was made: “The immediate future of library programs hinges almost entirely on these Congressmen: Reps. Daniel J. Flood (D-Pa.), Chairman; William H. Natcher (D-Ky.); Neal Smith (D-Iowa); W. R. Hull, Jr., (D-Mo.); Bob Casey (D-Texas); Melvin R. Laird (R-Wisc.); Robert H. Michel (R-I1I.); and Garner E. Shriver (R-Kansas).” Many academic librarians have indicated the value of the Higher Education Legislation. Librarians are very aware of the value of this Legislation, but every librarian should be responsible for informing his congressman and senator of the importance of such Legislation. Your contact with your local representative becomes even more important with the beginning of the 90th Congress, which includes many new members who are unfamiliar with library programs.

ALA is quite proud of its Washington Office and the work which it has accomplished in providing extensive federal funds for library development. The effectiveness of this office is dependent on your extensive support.
