Last week, President Barack Obama signed into law a $1.1 trillion spending bill to fund the federal government through the end of September, 2014.
The legislation includes $226,860,000 for IMLS which is roughly $7 million more than the FY13 budget, partially restoring the funding cuts that were part of sequestration.
The appropriation is about $1 million more than the IMLS FY 2014 Request.
The total amount appropriated for libraries, which is through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), increased from $175,044,000 in FY 2013 to $180,909,000 for FY 2014. The total for the Office of Museum Services is $30.1 million, a $900,000 increase from the FY 2013, post-sequestration total.
