HB 1343 Update
The Senate committee listened to your feedback and public libraries' concerns and gave HB 1343 some much-needed amendments.
The bill now contains "guardrails" that will protect libraries from having their budgets reviewed without cause or cut excessively! The bill must go back to the House for approvals since it has changed, and it may still receive further revisions. We will continue to monitor the bill and keep you updated.
