BOSTON – The Senate today restored $24.9M to the Fiscal Year 2018 budget, overriding 26 of Governor Baker’s line item vetoes, which totaled $320.6M. These veto overrides bolster valuable programs for children, families and vulnerable residents across the Commonwealth.
“The Senate took a stand today to secure resources that are vital to the well-being of our residents in the Commonwealth,” said Senator Cindy F. Friedman (D-Arlington). “We’ve made a commitment as legislators to advocate for the needs and interests of our most vulnerable residents in the towns and cities we represent. I’m proud to vote for these additional investments to help ensure that more children and families have access to the resources they need to thrive in Massachusetts.”
