Bill Passed by House Would Provide No Money for GPO’s Federal Digital System, Sharply Cuts Other Information Resources

“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.”  The portion of the GPO budget that funds the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) “would be reduced 16 percent, to $33.5 million, eliminating funding for the Federal Digital System (FDsys).”
