I do not have any revisions. However, I have a question about the status of the New Media Consortium. (Item 8.2 Budget Assumptions)  I received a message before the holidays that they had filed for bankruptcy.

Hi Kelly, we've updated our FY19 budget assumptions to remove the funds budgeted for the New Media Consortium. This will be reflected in the revised assumptions and FY19 budget we'll share at Midwinter 2018.
