SCA 3-DODD:  55% VOTE FOR LIBRARY BOND CONSTRUCTION –
SET FOR FIRST HEARING MARCH 29

*Action Requested*

SCA 3 by Senator Bill Dodd has been set for hearing in its first policy committee in the State Senate.  As recently reported, the measure seeks to lower the local vote threshold for library construction bonds from the current two-thirds vote to 55%.  SCA 3 is being referred to two different policy committees in the State Senate, with the first stop being the Senate Governance and Finance Committee on Wednesday, March 29 at the State Capitol.

Please take a moment today to send or fax a letter to each of the members of the Senate Governance and Finance Committee listed below, and please don’t forget to send a letter of thanks and support to the bill’s author, Senator Bill Dodd.  Your letters should be received by these legislators no later than Monday, March 20th in order for you, your group, or your local government entity to be listed in the committee analysis.

In your letters, please indicate how important public libraries are to your community, the many services you provide to patrons daily, and the critical need to have the infrastructure that will support these vital services.  Please stress how essential it is to give your local community the tools and the authority to decide if they would like to levy a library bond for new construction, renovation, or expansion by a 55% vote.
