The Montana State Library Commission meets six times per year. Commissioners include Chair Bruce Newell of Helena; Kenning Arlitsch, appointee of the commissioner of Higher Education; Elsie Arntzen of Helena, Superintendent of Public Instruction; Connie Eissinger of Brockway; Anne Kish of Twin Bridges; Aaron LaFromboise of Browning; and Ken Wall of Missoula.
At this meeting, the Commission will create a plan to cut 10% from the Library’s general fund budget. If the plan were enacted, these cuts would be in addition to cuts the Library already made this fiscal year.
