House and Senate Support for the IMLS Office of Museum Services
As reported in recent Alliance Advocacy Alerts, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and U.S. Representatives Paul Tonko (D-NY), Leonard Lance (R-NJ), Louise Slaughter (D-NY) and David McKinley (R-WV) recently circulated letters urging the House and Senate Appropriations Committees to provide robust funding in FY 2016 for the Office of Museum Services (OMS) at the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
Thank you to the many advocates who called, emailed and sent letters to legislators asking them to support this important effort!
We are working with the champion offices to gather final letters and signatories, and will report out the results of this year's effort soon.
