This critical bill for libraries and museums is stalled in the Lame Duck Congress. We need to tell Congress to get back to work.

The Museum and Library Services Act of 2018 is stalled in the House of Representatives. The Act is the foundation upon which all federal support for libraries, archives, and museums stands. It authorizes the Institute of Museum and Library Services, our national support system for the cultural, educational, historical, and community development mission that these institutions provide. It is critical that the Museum and Library Services Act be reauthorized. But Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McCarthy are blocking it from even reaching the floor of the House in this Lame Duck session.

The Senate passed this non-controversial reauthorization unanimously last week. We cannot understand why the bill is being blocked now. Please email your member of the House of Representatives today to put pressure on the Speaker and Majority Leader and bring this bill to the floor.
