Even though Gov. DeWine will not officially present his Fiscal Year 2022-2023 state budget proposal to the Ohio General Assembly until February 2021, the behind-the-scenes process of formulating his budget proposal has already begun. Jay Smith, OLC’s Director of Government and Legal Services, will host a series of virtual meetings with library directors across the state on his “Road Ahead Tour” for the next state budget. He will share information about OLC’s advocacy efforts and tools for library directors to utilize as we continue to fight for funding at the state level.
These meetings are especially important so libraries can speak with one strong voice at the Statehouse. A special thanks goes out to members of the OLC’s Legislative Network who helped coordinate the “stops” on the Road Ahead tour.
All library directors are encouraged to attend the Road Ahead session in their Ohio Senate district.
