House Bill – No Money for GPO's Federal Digital System, Sharply Cuts Other Information Resources

Library Journal: “On July 22, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 2551, the Legislative Branch Appropriations Act, 2012 by a vote of 252 – 159. Unless the Senate acts, the bill would reduce GPO’s budget for FY12 by 20 percent to $108.1 million. Within the GPO budget is the appropriation for the Office of Superintendent of Documents’ Salaries and Expenses, which funds the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). This appropriation would be reduced 16 percent, to $33.5 million, eliminating funding for the Federal Digital System (FDsys).”
