FEDERAL BUDGET: 'In FY2020 Budget Proposal, Trump Renews Bid to End Federal Library Funding'

Andrew Albanese writes for Publishers Weekly, “For a third straight year, the Trump administration has proposed the permanent elimination of the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and with it virtually all federal library funding.” The FY2020 proposal, titled A Budget for a Better America, includes “a $34 billion increase for the Department of Defense, and $8.6 billion for the border wall. In all, federal library funding in FY 2019, including the IMLS budget, came to roughly $233 million.” This shows that “library funding has actually increased slightly over the last two budgets. … And few people believe that his current overall budget proposal will survive in its current form in the House.”
