Well I am at the airport on the way to Washington D.C.  I hope to participate a bit in the planned Legislative Day.  It is going to be a full and fascinating conference.  And I am a bit nervous about introducing Eleanor Smeal, Ms. Magazine, at a program Sunday evening.  

Keep up the good work of contacting our Senators and Representatives.  They need to hear multiple times from each of us.

Immediate Action Needed to Protect Library Funding 


On Friday June 22, the U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to
consider the fiscal year (FY) 2008 Legislative Branch Appropriations
bill and several Members of Congress plan to offer amendments to the
bill. Please contact your Representative immediately and ask them to
vote NO on these amendments.  


Ask your Representative to oppose the following amendments that take
critical funding from the Government Printing Office and other important
programs funded by the Legislative Branch Appropriations Bills. 

*	Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) -- The amendment reduces funding for the
Government Printing Office - Congressional Printing and Binding by

*	Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) -- The amendment reduces appropriations
in the bill by 4% across the board.
