NYS Library Aid FY 2015-2016 – Needs Your Support!
Governor Cuomo, despite having an extra $5.5B in revenue this year and proposing up to a 4.8% increase in state education funding, proposed FLAT funding for our community libraries. Last year’s enacted state budget included a 5.7% increase in education funding, but a mere 1.2% increase in local library aid. New York State Education Law requires library aid for FY 2015-2016 to be $102.6M. This figure is based on the most recent census data.
The Governor’s flat funding proposal puts state library aid at $86.6M, equivalent to 1997 funding and $16M short of where it should be.
Use our pre-drafted letter to voice your support for fully funding NYS Library Aid in the FY 2015-2016 Budget – it takes less than two minutes.
