Save Ohio Libraries: House Bill 318

From Columbus Metropolitan Library web alert:

Without Senate support of HB 318, more cuts to libraries and other important services are on the way. This bill must pass before the Ohio Senate is scheduled to adjourn before the end of the year.

This proposal:
1. Postpones the final cut in the state income tax until the state is on more solid financial footing
2. Provides enough money to balance the state budget next year

If HB 318 does not pass in 2009, the result will be an additional funding loss for libraries, schools and local governments.

Ohioans advocate here.
