Texas State Library and Archives Commission


Legislative Appropriations Request FY2010-2011

The 81st Texas Legislature will convene in January 2009. At that time, they will begin considering the Texas State Library and Archives Commission budget for fiscal years 2010 and 2011. Before they convene, each state agency prepared a Legislative Appropriations Request (LAR).

On this page, you will find the state library's FY2010-2011 LAR, divided into individual, downloadable sections (due to file size).

The LAR consists of our agency's Base Budget and Exceptional Item Requests. The "base budget" refers to a budget request that is at the lowest level. The state leadership instructed agencies to prepare a base budget at 100 percent of the average amounts in fiscal years 2008-2009. The base budget for the agency totals over $65 million for the biennium. In addition, they asked each agency to prepare a report on how it would reduce its general revenue by 10 percent; this is Schedule 6.I below. This shows how the agency will cut its budget by $3.47 million over the biennium.

In this budget request, the agency asked for ten exceptional items. These totaled about $36.7 million of state general revenue funds for the biennium. We also requested an estimated $25 million in general obligation bonds for the expansion of the Lorenzo de Zavala State Archives and Library Building.
