Contact Your Senators: $5 Billion Proposed to be Diverted from the Senate Labor-HHS-Education Funding Bill

Even though Congress is on recess, critical funding decisions are being considered now. In recent days reports have noted that $5 billion may be diverted from the Senate spending bill that funds the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

The Senate has yet to formally consider its version of the bill, but Senate appropriators currently are making decisions about funding levels, so it's critical that you write your Senators now.
