The New Yorkers for Better Libraries PAC has released its 2012 Voter’s Guide: The Library Advocate’s Guide to the Voting Records of the New York State Legislature.

The Voter’s Guide, published since 201, grade NYS legislators on their voting records concerning library funding and legislative issues.

Scores are calculated based on library aid in the state budget; sponsorship of library priority legislation; recorded votes on library legislation, and letters of support (in the Assembly).  The grading scale is based on the number of total points each legislator receives in each category.  More details can be found within the Guide.

The guide can be found at:
