UPDATE — May 14, 2015
The Massachusetts Senate did well by libraries in the budget it posted this week. The Senate restored funding to 2015 levels, ignoring the devastating cuts made in the House budget and also being a little more generous than the Governor in his budget.
Now is the time to thank your Senator for his/her understanding of the importance of libraries and for his/her support and to encourage him/her to maintain this support in the next step of the budget process which is the reconciliation of the House and Senate budgets. This step will be done by conference committee in the next several weeks so it is important for all of us to continue urging our legislators to support library funding and to approve the figures in the Senate budget.
