Call your Senators now! Markup of bill appropriating Government Printing
Office funds set for today
The Senate Committee on Appropriations will hold a markup of the
Legislative Branch Appropriations bill that includes the funding for the
Government Printing Office at 2 p.m. today. As we have discussed in
previous blog posts<http://www.districtdispatch.org/2011/09/battle-front-federal-depository-library-program/>,
it is important that in this difficult financial time people make their
wishes known on how the government should allocate the spending tax dollars.
The Government Printing Office (GPO) is an invaluable resource in ensuring
that the public has access to government information. Appropriations for
the GPO fund the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), and it is
important that we ask for an additional $7 million to be specified for

gateway to greater access and preservation for government documents,
allowing the public to locate documents from any computer with an Internet
Please take a moment today to contact your senator and express the
importance of continued and expanded funding for the Government Printing
Office. For information on how to contact your senator and talking points,
