Senate 39-0, approved an amendment that would increase by $750,000 (from $15,967,600 to $16,717,600) funding for regional libraries.
“I’m proud to sponsor this amendment to increase support for our regional public libraries,” said sponsor Sen. Jake Oliveira (D-Ludlow). “By passing the amendment, the Senate has sent a clear message that it stands in solidarity to support free thought, diversity, inclusion and equity across the commonwealth through our public library system.”
