We won! State Aid was restored.

In Florida’s 2010 legislative session, State Aid to Libraries was reduced to zero in the budget prepared by the Florida House of Representatives and cut in half in the budget prepared by the Florida Senate.  After the budgets were reconciled, we were left with an $11 million allocation, which would decimate library services around the state.  This document was prepared to ask patrons to once again contact leaders of the Florida House and Senate on our behalf.  Funding was finally restored at midnight on Monday, April 26th after a statewide concerted effort from library lovers and library staff, including at least 60,000 emails through the Florida Library Association.
