In April of last year, Secretary of Education William J. Bennett introduced the Library Improvement Act (LIA) to Congress. (Vice‐President—then Senator—Dan Quayle proposed it to the Senate in June.) Designed to replace the over‐30‐year‐old Library Services and Construction Act (LSCA) and Title II of the Higher Education Act (HEA II), LIA drew an angry response from the library profession. The proposed legislation wore a price tag of $76 million, quite a mark‐down from the previous year's congressional appropriations of $127.2 million for LSCA and $10 million for HEA II.
