Short answer: I believe you can use it.

I used the information provided by Randy Riley's email of March 30. My
wording was based on this passage of that email message:

"As you know, total elimination of IMLS as proposed in the President’s
budget would have a devastating impact on library service across Michigan.
The Library of Michigan directed LSTA funds touch every community across
the state. For instance, LSTA funds pay for all costs associated with
MeLCat, the statewide resource sharing program providing nearly one million
loans to library patrons per year, as well as the majority of the Michigan
eLibrary’s (MeL) 40 databases and eBook content. Both programs have become
irreplaceable for libraries and schools of all types and sizes."

My belief is that all of us using MeLCat would be able to use this flyer.
I wanted to make this usable by any of us, by using the legislator search
service offered at usa.gov.
