Greetings,

The Public Education Appropriations Subcommittee voted this week to approve 
their prioritized list of education appropriation bills and proposals. They 
voted to fund items 1-13 on the list; we are 17th. 


As it stands, the line item for "school library books and electronic resources" 
maintains an ongoing figure of $500,000. So far, there are no additional monies, 
ongoing or one-time-only, appropriated. 


Representative Tim Cosgrove and Senator Daniel Thatcher continue to support the 
proposal. 


I thank every one who emailed, telephoned, or met with a legislator regarding 
money for school libraries. Every effort counts. Thank you. 


The session isn't over yet. 

Best wishes,

Sharyl
