Governor Cuomo, despite having an extra $5.5B in revenue this year and proposing up to a 4.8% increase in state education funding, proposed FLAT funding for our community libraries. Last year’s enacted state budget included a 5.7% increase in education funding, but a mere 1.2% increase in local library aid. New York State Education Law requires library aid for FY 2015-2016 to be $102.6M. This figure is based on the most recent census data.
