Vote number MAX05-H225 Funding libraries from Cultural Facilities Fund
on Oct 6, 2005 regarding bill H. 4404 Amendment #138
Results: rejected 14-134

A 'cultural facility' is defined as a building or site that is owned or otherwise used by one or more cultural organizations and that is accessible to the public and exempt from income taxation. The term 'cultural facility' may include museums, historical sites, zoos, aquariums, nature/science centers, theaters, concert halls, exhibition spaces, classrooms, and auditoriums suitable for presentation of performing or visual arts. Public or private institutions of higher education may qualify if they demonstrate that their cultural facility provides service and open access to the community and general public. This vote would add 'libraries' to the definition of 'cultural facility', and hence allow funding libraries from the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund.

The relevant part of the MassDems Platform is Part III, clause 18: EDUCATION: We support increased state and federal funding to build, renovate, and modernize our schools and colleges and libraries.
