Every year, Massachusetts legislature passes a state budget. The LWVMA Legislative Action Committee doesn’t advocate on the budget, with one exception– outside amendments to the budget. Outside amendments are “add-ons” that may include the essence of bills we support. An example is the ROE Act, which was included in a supplemental budget last session and which we actively supported. As the process continues, we may ask you to support an outside amendment this session that moves our legislative priorities forward, so stay tuned!
