Georgia State Archives Threatened to Be Closed to Public Due to Budget Constraints

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The Friends of Georgia Archives and History website has posted an article that states Georgia HB 78, the state budget bill as currently drafted and passed the House of Representatives on March 11, could force the closure to the public due to a $300,000 budget cut. Currently the Archives is open only 3 days a week to the public.

At the time of this posting, the Georgia State Legislature does not have HB 78 posted and available to the public, http://tinyurl.com/475paoh
