EPA libraries

There's more information about the EPA library situation this weekend. If you haven't been following this story, the stripped down version is that last year the Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility got the word out that the EPA was going to shut down its network of libraries due to budget cuts. In fact, the EPA began to close the libraries but halted because of a public outcry on the part of the public, researchers and librarians.
Now, according to the ALA blog , Congress has included language in the appropriations bill for the Dept. of the Interior for fy2008 (S.1696) ordering the EPA to restore the library network.
