We have just learned that SB167 which would abolish the library boards effective January 1 and allow the county judge executives to appoint new library boards of their choosing will be heard in the State and Local Government Committee today at noon.  This bill would also require unanimous fiscal court approval for any construction project over $500,000!  

We are asking for anyone who is represented by any of these Senators to call as soon as possible – today if possible – and express your opposition to this bill.
