Gov. Pataki Divides Library Funding by Political Party
By Karen Dewitt
Albany, NY – When Governor Pataki vetoed portions of the state legislature's budget, he rejected extra aid to libraries around the state.

That has libraries, and some of their patrons, upset. WAMC's Capitol Correspondent Karen Dewitt reports.
