GPO Hearing

I have updated the ALA webpage on FDLP issues to include information about today's House Administration Committee hearing on the GPO.  Of particular interest to our members, the Public Printer includes this statement in her testimony,

"However, we have no intention of charging public users a fee to access content available through
FDsys. GPO is committed to no -fee, permanent, public access to FDsys as a fundamental element of our mission of Keeping America Informed, as I wrote to the CASSANDRA (Concerned Government Information Professionals) library group in March 2013. As you know, no-fee access to Government
information provided via the Federal Depository Library Program is guaranteed by statute (4 U.S.C.

1911)".
