From Michael Borges:
“2010 Legislative Session has ended (or at least come to some sort of conclusion). The bad news is that the $2.4 million in Library Aid cuts were approved, which will reduce Library Aid to $84.4 million or below 1998 levels. In addition, School Aid was reduced by approximately $1.4 billion (although School Library Materials Aid remained the same at $6.25 per pupil). ALE (Adult Literacy Education) funds were also reduced by $2 million to $4.2 million.”
