While we were not able to increase the Public Library Fund (PLF) rate in the House, we are now switching gears and moving forward in the Senate. OLC is already having meetings with key members of the Ohio Senate and testified last week. Read testimony before the Senate Higher Education Committee.
Over the next two weeks, please call or email your state senator. Urge the Ohio Senate to:
- Make public libraries a priority in the Senate version of the state budget.
- Restore the Public Library Fund to 1.7% of the General Revenue Fund (GRF).
- Hold public libraries Harmless from any additional unintended reductions in state funding resulting from the tax reform proposals.
