more soon...? Until then, an update on the PLF, from Michelle Francis at Ohio Library Council:
"RE: PLF CHANGES IN STATE BUDGET BILL
Yesterday, the House Finance Committee accepted a substitute version of HB 64, the state's biennial budget bill. The House's version of the bill includes a provision increasing the PLF from 1.66% to 1.7%. In addition, the substitute bill makes numerous changes to the governor's tax reform proposal. The substitute bill contains more than 3,000 pages. We will send out additional information and talking points once we have an opportunity to review all of the changes.
This is definitely a step forward, but we still have a long way to go in the overall budget process. The House hopes to finish their work next week after additional hearings and amendments. Then, the bill will move to the Senate for consideration.
This change will be the primary focus of our advocacy efforts on Legislative Day on April 28th!"
