Federal FY2020 Budget Includes IMLS Increase

Dec 26, 2019

Congress has provided the largest increase for Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funding in 12 years. The House- and Senate-approved final FY 2020 spending bills included $252 million for IMLS, a $10 million increase for an agency originally marked for elimination by President Trump. Of the overall increase, $6.2 million was dedicated to the LSTA program. The budget was signed by the President on Friday, December 20.

The Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA; Public Law 108-81), administered by IMLS, provides federal funds to the Wyoming State Library to support library services and projects across the state.
