State Aid and State Library Cut Deeply in House TED budget – Contacts Needed Now!

Just received 3/15/2011 from Charlie Parker
This morning the House Transportation and Economic Development Appropriations Subcommittee adopted a preliminary position that does the following:

-Reduces State Aid to Public Libraries from the current federal maintenance of effort level of $21,248,667 to $8,318,188 or a 60% reduction

-Consolidates the State Library and Archives, eliminating 7 positions and $437,875

-Takes away $532,289 for Library Resources in state General Revenue and replaces it with LSTA, thus reducing the LSTA funds available for other needs.

-Does not fund the library cooperative program which is at $1.2 million this year

Also remember this is early in the process. The House and Senate committees have not yet reported out their budgets and they have gone to the House and Senate floor. The session is scheduled to end May 6. But we have to act now – many of these legislators are new and need to see how strongly Floridians feel about their libraries.

Please contact your legislators and let them know about this problem along with the House leadership and TED committee members listed below. It is critical for them to hear from the library community now.

As Charlie Parker says "I know this is rough news, but please be very nice to these folks."
