The Ohio House of Representatives passed its version of the state budget (HB 49) on May 2, 2017 setting the Public Library Fund (PLF) for the next two fiscal years at 1.66% of the General Revenue Fund (GRF) rather than the current fiscal year rate of 1.7% as the OLC requested. However, the state budget discussion is far from over! The OLC continues to advocate for retaining the PLF at 1.7% of the GRF as the bill moves to the Ohio Senate for consideration.
