We all want to live safe, healthy lives.
In Massachusetts, public services that we care deeply about – education, public safety, services for the elderly and disabled, and environmental protection, to name just a few – are hurting.
For our public structures to function effectively, they must be maintained and sometimes repaired or entirely redesigned. Our current revenues are not up to the task.
Is it possible to imagine a revenue structure that brings in adequate funding in an equitable way? If so, what does that look like?
Representative Jay Kaufman, Co-chair of the Joint Committee on Revenue, is currently planning a series of community forums on the implications of our revenue decisions moving forward.
Please join The Public Policy Institute for a special Insider Budget Briefing, where Representative Kaufman will lead our discussion on how you think we should fund our public services.
The tuition for the session is $10, and includes a light supper. If you are unable to pay the fee but want to join us, please let us know.
