2.90 TRILLION FEDERAL BUDGET


The Administration submitted a new budget today proposing 2.90 Trillion in spending. Military spending takes a big hike with proportional cuts in social programs. The news services are reporting that the majority of Defense Department increases will be paid at the expense of Low-Income Americans and Seniors, with the tax-cuts for the wealthiest of Americans to be made permanent. I have not heard anything yet about support for libraries.

However, I would think that if there was ever a time for Advocacy activities by Friends of Libraries and other library supporters, this is it! Plans to "Super-Size" the Iraq invasion force or build an Iran invasion force must not derail much needed social programs in our society.

The WLA and WLTA will keep you informed on key issues regarding libraries that you should be in contact with your legislators and congressmen about. Stay tuned!
