Item 239 #1s

First Year - FY2017 Second Year - FY2018
The Library Of Virginia FY2017 $0 FY2018 $294,250 GF

Page 222, line 12, strike "$7,736,033" and insert "$8,030,283".


(The Governor's amendments to the FY 2017 budget reduced the Library's appropriation by $413,742 and for FY 2018 by $631,297. Occurring after a decade of reductions, the Library has had to eliminate staff, putting several important programs at risk. This amendment provides funding to fill four positions (1 processing archivist, 1 digital collections specialist, 1 records manager, and 1 government documents librarian) to allow the programs they support to fill their mission critical responsibilities. The Library has only 111 filled positions within its Maximum Employment Level of 198, so no addition to the MEL is needed.)
