      The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the
      grant-making arm of the National Archives and Records Administration, is
      facing a $2 million reduction in budget in the Administration's FY13
      appropriations budget request. The request is $3 million where the current
      level is $5 million. A Senate Appropriations hearing is scheduled on
      Tuesday, June 12.

      While the press release by the State Archivists state the hearing is by the
      full committee (see below) the Senate Appropriations Committee website shows
      Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee holding a markup on
      the Financial Services General Government Appropriations bill.
