New York State Library Aid Needs Your Support!
Thanks to everyone who contacted their officials on the library’s behalf! Because of your efforts, both the Senate and Assembly have proposed increased funding for library aid.
The Senate’s one-house budget resolution includes an additional $5M in library aid, as well as $14M in capital funding, a $1.3M MTA tax reimbursement, and a permanent MTA tax exemption. The Assembly’s one-house budget resolution includes an additional $2M in library aid, as well as $14M in capital funding, a $1.3M MTA tax reimbursement, and a permanent MTA tax exemption.
Though this is good news there is a long way to go between now and a final budget. We need your continued efforts to make sure that the enacted state budget includes an increase in library aid.
Local libraries depend on state aid. As always, we thank you for your support!
