Update on the Elementary & Secondary School Library Media act.  This
important federal legislation is being discussed NOW by the Elementary &
Secondary & Vocational Education Committee.  They are planning to tack
this bill, as an amendment, on to the Improving Americas Schools Act.  ALA
says this is a very positive step.  The bill number is now HR3130.  The
comm. will vote next Tues, Feb. 1, 94.  School librarians MUST call their
representatives in the house immediately.  Residents of NY State please
call Rep. Susan Molinari 202-225-3371 and Elliott Engell 202-225-2464.
Both are on the Elem & Sec & Voc Ed Comm.  School librarians in other
states, please call your reps in the house and urge them to contact
colleagues on this comm.  Bill HR3130 must be passed by the comm. if it is
to go forward.  Make that phone call. Thanks, Judy James
