Here is the text of S.5017, the federal library construction bill. It seems to envision the funds coming to the state and local jurisdictions applying for those funds. https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/senate-bill/5071/text?q=%7B%22search%22%3A%5B%22s.+5071%22%5D%7D&r=1&s=6

What impact could the Republican effort to try again to ban local governments (cities and counties) from hiring lobbyists to advocate for them at the capitol, have on libraries? Those bills would not only bar cities and counties from hiring lobbyists, but also prevent them from joining groups (such as the Texas Library Association?) which often advocate for them.
