prioritizations, and public education budget proposal. Please try attend if you

buy with your regular budget last year--and what you would buy if you had your
school's share of $1 million (very roughly double last year). Email addresses
are attached. (With Senator Daniel Thatcher's advice, we are asking for an
additional $500,000 in ongoing funding, totaling $1 million. Originally, in
2006, the Subcommittee funded the request with $2 million.) with the improvement
in our economy, there are a great many requests, so compeition is strong.
Write "School Library Funding" in the subject line.
