Budget update Monday, May 16, 2011

Posted by gisref in updates.

From the State Librarian:

The Governor has announced that a settlement has been reached with the unions.  The details have not been released, but the Governor said that there will be no furloughs and no reduction in hours.  Also there will be no layoffs over the next 4 years.  There will still need to be some budget reductions to achieve the full savings and those won’t be known until next week or so.  I am cautiously optimistic that based on what was said the State Library will not be eliminated.  However, some cuts may be on the horizon.
I would like to thank you all for your advocacy efforts over the past week. I know that I and the entire staff of the State Library really appreciate all that you have done to support the Library. As I learn what if any additional cuts are forthcoming I will let you know.
