Save Ohio Libraries

save ohio libraries

Another funding crisis has hit the state. House Bill 318 must pass to prevent it. This bill would delay a final income state tax cut and would not increase taxes. The Governor and the House of Representatives already support the bill. With only two scheduled Senate sessions this year--Tues., Dec. 15, and Wed., Dec. 16.--time is running out as the bill must become law by December 31 of this year

If the Senate fails to pass this bill, there will be more budget cuts not only for public libraries, but also in higher- and K-12 education, local governments, health and human services, children services, etc.HB 318 is essential to the state's economic recovery.
