Senate Appropriations Committee approves amendment to improve livelihoods

Views: 85

The Senate Appropriations Committee has approved the proposal to help rural schools, libraries and health-care facilities.

The provision is included as part of the Financial Services and General Government appropriations bill and would exempt the universal service program funding for rural schools, libraries and health care facilities from the Anti-deficiency Act. This will allow schools and health clinics to get funding support for distance learning and tele-medicine in a timely fashion. This initiative will help rural schools, libraries and health care facilities in Alaska, and other places in America, that receive funding for distance learning and tele-medicine.
