Proposal to Reduce NJKI Funding

In all likelihood, funding for The New Jersey Knowledge Initiative will be reduced from $3M to $2M for fiscal year 2007-2008. Voting on the budget is scheduled for 21 June. If funding is reduced, it is obvious that the number of databases available to businesses and residents of New Jersey will also be reduced. If information is indeed power, a diminished number of high-quality information resources available to our many small business entrepreneurs, university and college students, pharmaceuticals, and others can only lessen New Jersey's appeal to future residents and businesses.
