The Check is in the Mail! Secretary of State William Galvin Steps Up for Snow Fighters

William GalvinLate yesterday, in the absence of Governor Patrick, and given the fact that the Commonwealth does not currently have a Lt. Governor, Secretary of State, William Galvin, stepped up and signed the supplemental budget legislation that was finally enacted by the State Senate.

The budget, now law, authorizes the DOT to IMMEDIATELY pay up to $50M in overdue snow and ice invoices.

Checks should start arriving within the next 7 – 10 days.

Thank you to all of you who took the time to flood the phone lines of our law makers to push this Bill through.  We will be looking for that same dedication over the next few weeks when Rep. Vieira’s new legislation hits the House.
