Greetings!=20
=20
History:
=20
Here's what's happened to Representative Tim Cosgrove's one-time only
appropriations request for $4 million for school library books.
=20
The Education Appropriations Committee, thanks to Rep Cosgrove's motion,
unanimously added the $4 million request for school library books to
their priority list which they sent on to the Executive Appropriations
Committee.
=20
The Executive Appropriations Committee included our request on their
priority list, adding it as a part of Senate Bill (SB) 5. Senator Howard
Stephenson is the sponsor of SB 5.
=20
The joint leadership of the House and the Senate have included our
request in their priority list. They reduced the amount from $4 million
to $2 million, but the request for school library books has survived so
far.
=20
=20
What's Next?
=20
Today (Monday) and tomorrow the Legislature is expected to finalize the
budget. One legislator said that it's still possible that the request
could be reduced or cut out entirely; it's also possible that they could
find a little money to add back in.
=20
We need to try our best to influence what happens next.=20
=20
Please email legislators (NOT USING YOUR WORK COMPUTER) just as soon as
you possibly can. Your message doesn't have to be long. (See names and
email addresses of the leadership below.)  I suggest that you email as
many legislators as you like. They will all have a vote.
=20
The message remains just about the same:
=20

Please support the one-time only education appropriations funding
request for school library books in Senate Bill 5. Utah's school library
collections urgently need updating.

=20

Follow this with your own story about why this funding is important to
the students and teachers of your school.=20

=20

I intend to ask that, if possible, they restore at least some of the
money that was cut from the original request.=20

=20

Please be sure to thank the Senate and House leadership for their
support.=20

=20

I thank you for your efforts. So far, it's working! Keep going, we're
almost there.

PS I've found that many of the people listed below have been our friends
and worked to promote the request for school library books. When you ask
for their support, please thank them for their efforts to bring the
request this far.
