Massachusetts League members are welcome to participate in a rally/press event on Tuesday, Dec. 3, before the coalition presents all the certified signatures to the Secretary of State. We’ll gather on the steps of One Ashburton Place, across Bowdoin Street from the State House, at 11:30 a.m. for a rally to celebrate the strong public support for the updated bottle bill evidenced by the number of people who signed our petitions. After the rally, the coalition leaders will personally deliver the certified signatures to the Secretary of State.
LWVMA members gathered 20,000 signatures toward putting the question of expanding the bottle bill to non-carbonated beverage containers on the November 2014 ballot. Our signatures, along with over 100,000 gathered from other sources, are now being certified in all 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts.
