Action needed.Additional cosponsors are needed to move the legislation through the process this year. Especially important are members of the Governmental Affairs Committee, to which S.J.Res. 57 will be referred. Urge your Senators to sign on as cosponsors of S.J.Res. 57. Thank those who have already done so.

Budget.The final Reagan Administration budget for federal library programs, since endorsed by President Bush, requests funds equal to current year funding of $137.2 million for the Library Services and Construction Act and the Higher Education Act title II. However, the fiscal year 1990 request is predicated on passage of legislation to be proposed later which would repeal the existing LSCA and HEA II. Such legislation was submitted to Congress last spring as the proposed Library Improvement Act with total funding of $76 million. Congress took no action on the proposal, which now apparently will be resubmitted with a higher authorization level. Meanwhile, congressional appropriations committees must base funding actions on the existing LSCA and HEA II, and authorizing committees must act to extend LSCA this year. A reauthorization hearing focusing on the accomplishments of LSCA is expected to be held on April 11, which is also Library Legislative Day in Washington, D.C.
