While it is great news that both the House and Senate have passed the Governors supplemental funding Bill, they have unfortunately passed differing versions of the original Bill.  Now the Legislation goes before a joint conference committee, comprised of house and senate members, who hash out the differences in the bill and offer the final version to the Governor for his consideration. 

At this time we are awaiting the appointment of the committee members by both the House and the Senate leadership teams.  It is up to the House Speaker, Robert DeLeo, and Senate President, Therese Murray to appoint the committee.  So far, that has not happened.  We need everyone with a phone to flood their offices with calls regarding the urgent resolution of this matter.

Robert DeLeo – State House office – 617-722-2500; District office – 781-289-8965

Therese Murray – State House office – 617-722-1500 District office – 508-746-9332  

Please stay tuned for additional information, as we have contacts on Beacon Hill that are reporting information to us throughout the day.
