Kansas: Legislation in House of Reps to Make Funding For Public Libraries Optional Stalls
From the McPherson Sentinel:
A bill [HB 2719] that would change funding for public libraries in Kansas has stalled after library advocates spoke against it.
The bill would make it optional for cities to fund public libraries. Currently, library funding is a requirement.
The bill has not made any progress since March 14, according to its history on the Kansas State Legislature website.
