Great news! The Florida Senate and House agreed in their conference committee late yesterday to fund the six Florida MLCs at $1.2 million for FY2010-11 (which is the same level of funding as the current year). I will be sending out a message soon to all member library staff with the names of legislators who we need to thank for this state funding.
Thanks also to the MLC Lobbyist, Dale Patchett. He put in a lot of hours on our behalf and made the difference coming down the stretch. Thanks Dale!
