No Amendment Offered to Limit FCC’s Funding Ability on E-rate.
Posted on July 16, 2014 by Jeffrey Kratz

The ALA Washington is getting word from the Hill that a possible amendment
to the House Financial Services Appropriations bill that would limit the
Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) ability to increase funding to the
Federal E-rate programs has been withdrawn. Please see Monday’s
Dispatch post.

Sources in the House Democratic Leadership tell ALA that the majority chose
not to proceed with the amendment due to widespread opposition from the
library and school community.

Thank you to everyone that made calls to their House Member to defeat this
