It was recently reported on this forum about Washington State (USA) HB 2033 which creates a new Department of Heritage, Arts and Culture which would include the State Library but not the Archives resulting in a concern about future funding for the archives. On April 6, a substitute bill was heard where inclusion of the State Library was removed from the proposed new department leaving the State Library and State Archives as they were within the state hierarchy before the bill was introduced.
