Group publishes guide on library issues
ALBANY — The New Yorkers for Better Libraries PAC has released its 2012 voter’s guide: “The Library Advocate’s Guide to the Voting Records of the New York State Legislature.”
The voter’s guide, published since 2010, grades New York state legislators on their voting records concerning library funding and legislative issues.
It gives library supporters throughout the state the opportunity to see how their elected officials are voting.
“Scores are higher this year than last year,” John Hammond of the New Yorkers for Better Libraries said in a press release. “A modest restoration in state aid to libraries, along with the passage of eight important pieces of library legislation in at least one house helped bring grades up.”
Scores are calculated based on library aid in the state budget; sponsorship of library priority legislation; recorded votes on library legislation; and letters of support in the Assembly. The grading scale is based on the number of total points each legislature receives in each category.
