82nd Legislative Session (2011)

Summary of the 82nd Regular Session: The House and Senate voted to approve HB 1, the state’s budget bill. The final version settled on the House recommendations for library funding in Article I of the budget (where funding for the State Library is found). The budget restores $2.5 million over the biennium for TexShare but does not include funding for the K-12 databases, Loan Star Libraries (direct aid for public libraries), or other library programs at the agency. The final budget did restore the State Law Library.

SB 773 (Zaffirini), the key telecom bill for educational institutions, did pass the legislature. For a complete write-up on the Regular Session, go to Texline 282.
