Secessionist Rick Perry Continues His War on Education/Thinking - Cuts Library Funding by 88 percent

From Library Journal

The new state biennial budget (FY 2012-13) in Texas, signed Tuesday by Governor Rick Perry, will reduce state funding for the Texas State Library and Archives Commission by 64 percent and will cut state funding for the agency's library programs by 88 percent.

According to figures provided by the state library, the overall state library budget will shrink from $19.8 million each year of the two-year budget to $7.2 million. Funding for the state agency's library programs will go from $12.8 million to $1.6 million. The Library Development and Library Resource Sharing divisions will be merged into a single division,

Budget cuts may not stop here
"This is a terrible storm that we must weather together," said Peggy Rudd, the director of the state library in a July 26 presentation to the Texas Library Association. "It will only be much worse if we don't work together to survive this," she said.

"I don't think the budget cuts will stop here," Rudd said. "The state still has a large structural deficit (about $9 billion), Medicare/Medicaid costs continue to soar, and the smoke and mirror gimmicks have been used up," she said.

Let's see. Secesssionist Rick Perry wants to see creationism taught in school and Texas is right at the bottom because he's more concerned about running for office than education.

Because a dumb Texas is more likely to reelect him again.
