Legislative Update 6/6/2017

Session Closure Report – from Sam Walseth, Capitol Hill Associates

While the Governor’s line-item veto of the legislature’s operating budget means the people’s business isn’t quite finished, it is for our practical purposes.

The final Bonding bill, signed into law, appropriates $2 million for library construction and renovation projects.

The final Legacy bill, signed into law, appropriates $2.5 million for library legacy programming for the next two years.

The final E-12 bill, signed into law, doesn’t appropriate new funding for regional library programs.

The 2018 session begins at noon on Tuesday, February 20th.
