[NYLINE] Cuomo Cuts $4M from Library Aid

This message is to provide you with an update on Library Aid in the Governor’s 2014-15

Executive Budget.

Governor Cuomo has proposed $81.6M in Library Aid, which removes the additional $4M

provided by the Legislature in the 2013-14 Budget ($85.6M).

This represents a 4.7% cut in Library Aid!



The Executive Budget is not yet finalized – the Governor can restore this funding by amending

his budget by February 20, so the time to take action is NOW. NYLA provides you with a quick

and easy means of showing your support. Follow the link below, click on ‘Take Action’, edit the

supplied advocacy message as you like, enter your name and address, and hit ‘send message’.

Your message will automatically be delivered to Governor Cuomo.
