IMLS Reauthorization Bill Introduced

On September 28, the “Museum and Library Services Act” (S. 3530) was re-introduced by Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) to accommodate a minor change in the state library grant formula. This bill will reauthorize the IMLS. This change to the library state grant funding formula doesn’t affect museum provisions included in the previous version that was introduced by Senator Reed in 2017. In addition, a new companion bill (H.R. 6988) was introduced in the House by Representative Raul Grijalva (D-AZ).
