I’ll hold you to it, Senator.

Dear Mr. [X]:

Thank you for contacting my office regarding your support for Library Services Technology Grants to States program funding in the Fiscal Year 2009 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education Appropriations Bill. I appreciate learning of your interest on this issue.

As a nation, we have many varied interests and priorities. One of the most challenging tasks Congress has is to adequately fund these priorities in the interests of all Americans. As the Senate proceeds with the Fiscal Year 2009 appropriations process, rest assured that I will take your comments into consideration.

Thank you again for writing. Please feel free to contact me again regarding this or any other matter of concern.

Sincerely,

Arlen Specter

I will indeed, Senator Specter. (Encouraging, yet evasive… Touché.)
