Federal Budget Bill to Benefit Brown County Library, St. Norbert Collge

Link to December 16 Green Bay Post-Gazette article, "Green Bay Metro bus line, library, St. Norbert, YWCA in line for federal funds".

Excerpt: Education and transportation in Northeastern Wisconsin are primed to benefit from the massive spending bill awaiting President Barack Obama's signature. When Obama signs the $1.1 trillion bill to fund government agencies through next September, he will clear the way for Green Bay Metro to receive $1.1 million for buses and facilities. Other local organizations receiving funding in the legislation include the Brown County Library and St. Norbert College, according to a statement released by U.S. Rep. Steve Kagen, D-Appleton.

The Brown County Public Library will receive $300,000, to be used for renovations at the Central Library.

St. Norbert College will use its $910,000 allocation for instructional technology, laboratory equipment, classroom furnishings, and science discovery center supplies.
