dc.description The FAFLRT Executive Board recently voted to form a new FAFLRT Committee on Legislation (COL). To best serve the needs of Federal and Armed Forces libraries, FAFLRT should have a direct line to ALA’s COL to suggest new legislation that would benefit the FAFLRT community. We know that the closing of federal libraries is only one important issue for FAFLRT members. There are many additional challenges that may require legislative attention. But how do we identify those challenges? What are some creative ways Congress might support libraries in improving services to users? And how can we harness the great legislative ideas of staff in Federal and Armed Forces libraries? A committee was formed to decide how to identify issues and gather input from federal and armed forces libraries. It is proposed that there will be a series of opportunities to speak up and staff in various types of libraries may present ideas for possible legislative initiatives. You may also see special events held, listening sessions at conferences, or even virtual meetings. The FAFLRT Committee on Legislation will craft resolutions for consideration by the ALA legislative assembly and ultimately the ALA Washington office for action.
