2005-2006 PATRIOT Act Votes and
Library Funding Support

Below is a record of how your Members of Congress voted for the PATRIOT Act reauthorization and for funding for libraries. Please refer to their voting record when you meet with them during National Library Legislative Day.

  • If your Senator voted in support of safeguarding civil liberties, please thank them for supporting libraries.
  • If they voted for the compromise version of the PATRIOT legislation, ask them why they voted this way and explain how their vote had a negative impact on your ability to provide library services.
  • Similarly, if your Senator(s) or Representative(s) signed onto letters for increased library funding thank them for their support, and
  • if they did not, then tell them about the negative impact their lack of support has had on your library.

Library Funding

Specter/Harkin Amendment
The Sen. Specter (R-PA) and Sen. Harkin (D-IA) amendment would add $7 billion to education and health programs to prevent the devastating cuts and program eliminations proposed in the FY 2007 budget. Without the Specter/Harkin amendment, the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education Appropriations Subcommittee is likely to go after larger programs to restore the program eliminations proposed in the President’s budget. The $10 million increase for LSTA could be eliminated to fund those programs which were cut by the President unless Specter/Harkin passes.

FY 07 Support Letters
In both the House and the Senate, Members of Congress circulated letters of support for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and the Improving Literacy Through School Libraries program to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees. Circulating the letters in Congress are Representative Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ) and Representative Robert Simmons (R-CT) in the House of Representatives, and Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) and Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) in the Senate.

The letters are addressed to the House and Senate Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Appropriation Subcommittees and request that the House and Senate include President Bush's request of $220.855 million for the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) and increased funding for the Improving Literary Through School Libraries program for FY 2007.
