Because of your grassroots efforts, paired with our direct lobbying in the statehouse, the Indiana General Assembly included additional funds to support internet connectivity for libraries and schools. Libraries will receive an additional $1M and schools will receive an additional $2M over the biennium for total of $5M per year for all.
INSPIRE was also funded at the requested levels.
Please be sure to thank
your state legislators
and invite them to your library or school. Show your appreciation by tweeting a photo of patrons/students on computers or using devices. Write a letter to the editor. Need other suggestions? Contact us.
Thanks to our Legislative Advocates at
