Public Library Capital Grant funding receives cut, but maintains mandate

In Conference Committee, the House version of the Public Library Capital Grant prevailed.  This means that the funded amount for FY 2012 will be reduced from $5 million to $4 million—a 20% reduction that is in line with the 20% reduction to the entire Capital budget.  However, what was more important is that the mandate to include $5 million for this grant in the budget each year was retained.  The mandate was retained largely due to the advocacy efforts of the public library administrators, who demonstrated to legislators the importance of this state funding to leverage local funding and complete library projects.
