On Tuesday, Feb. 21 the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Article I will consider agency budgets under Article I - General Government, which includes the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC). TLA members from school, public and academic libraries will be on hand to testify to TSLAC's importance to the library community, the need for adequate funding, and why increasing funding for e-resources and broadband access is critical.

Please contact your state representatives, especially if they serve on the Article I subcommittee, and express your support for the State Library's budget request in HB 1, the appropriations bill, and your support for increasing access to affordable STEM e-resources, and bringing affordable high-speed Internet to more Texas public libraries. Visit the TLA Issues and Taking Action page for messaging, links to finding your representative, and additional background information.
